Journey of Your Life: Becoming a Successful Product Development Craftsman

Job-Ready Prototyping The App & System

My aim as your instructor in this course and all of my related and technical courses, is to teach you to become a practicing and successful Product Development Craftsman or PDC.

We'll do this in a no-nonsense, practical hands-on way in the shortest time possible.

All of my courses are fully "self-contained learning modules."

Train for your destiny. Make a ding in the universe!

No prior experience necessary! If you're a pro already, there's things to learn too!

  • We'll concentrate on creating and refining first and foremost, an advanced PDC mindset and then detailed hands-on 100% prototyping of the app & system.
  • Then, we're going to publish from within the design toolset directly and install and run fully as a 100% native iPhone 6 app! WoW!

I use the best practices and lessons-learned over 20+ years of solid industrial-grade development work to make sure you understand and implement what works and what doesn't.

deliver a very practical and deeply hands-on workshop format that you'll benefit and learn from and love. I promise you!

PLEASE NOTE: I'll NOT be publishing the rest four (4) courses in this series due to some serious cancer-related issues in my life. I may resume but at this point in my life, it's unlikely.

Now, I have dedicated my life to working in healthcare and fighting cancer in all its forms as a computational-genomics (CRISPR) specialist and fight the good fight for cancer eradication. My deepest apologies to everyone if this has caused any confusion or inconveniences.

Because of this reason, I have reduced the price to ONLY $5 forever and there may be more discounts to you from Udemy! Please do take advantage of this as soon as you cna and benefit from this course and resources I have created for you!

Bless you angels! Lots of love, hugs and kisses! Lis

A neat little intro video I did to make your day happy!

Did you know, we need to...

  1. Learn to code. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of software developers alone is expected to grow 22% between 2012 and 2022.
  2. And this doesn’t even include the extraordinary demand for design and product management skills that companies are searching for at career fairs and technical bootcamps.


Enjoy. Bless ;-)
