Desktop applications is a billion dollar business and it's only going to keep on growing as companies like WhatsApp, Skype, Adobe, Microsoft, GitHub among other top companies are still pushing a lot into desktop application development.
The only down side is that, there are fewer desktop developers than web developers and that is where you come in. Now is the best time for you to learn desktop application development and put yourself at the forefront of this billion dollar industry.
Whether you want to get a job as a desktop application developer or build the next billion dollar desktop application that matters. Whether you’re an advanced web developer or you’re now starting out.
Now is your best time to enroll in this electron course and learn everything you need, from setup to building traditional desktop applications, all the way to building system tray applications and even packaging and distributing your desktop apps on all operating systems including windows, macOS and linux.

What you’ll build in this course
A Fully Fledged Text Editor: We're going to cover the moving parts of an electron application by building this very first app. We’ll cover concepts like main and renderer process, Inter process communication (IPC), Dialogs among others, which should get you familiar with how electron apps are built.
A Complex Music Player: We will take things a step further by building a complex music player which has playlist, can pause, play next, play previous etc.
A System Tray Music Player: We will then convert our music player from a traditional desktop application to a system tray app. At the end, we should be able to start and stop our music player from the system tray.
A Top Headlines News Reader: We will then have some fun with a news reader application which also has the complexity of multiple categories and article search. We will learn how to launch multiple “pages” in our app.
A Radio Streaming App: I can now stream my favourite radio stations with this app almost every time I code. We’ll build this radio streaming app from scratch, which you can also use.
Packaging: We will package and distribute the music player app we built in this course for windows, macOS and Linux. After this section, you should know how to package and distribute your application for all operating systems.
Hear From Students Who Took This Course - (More in reviews section below):
The course is exactly what it promises to be; a practical demonstration of the core concept of Electron applications and its most relevant capabilities. The sample applications chosen are really on-point and pragmatic. - Joan Carballo
Initially, I thought this was gonna be just one of those courses, but going through this course I realized its one in a million. You are a great teacher. - Quaqu Henry
I was sceptic at first because the instructor's voice in preview videos was not confident and with a strong accent. But he proved me wrong. After the first "boom" line I was sucked in and I learnt a lot and I'm very thankful. Yes, he made some typos along the course, but I was proud of myself when I realised them before he pointed them out and fixed. The applications you build are great base for further electron experimentation. This course is a career starter - it is a must. - Jonas Krotil
This is by far one of the best electron courses I've seen. It was easy to understand underlying concepts. Following the tutorial, I have been able to rebuild the apps without any assistance. Also, Mubarak was almost always available to answer all my questions. - Mohammed Zakari
Very good. It is fast paced without unnecessary filler. - Peter Weston
