Description

Update: Join over 8,200 students in the Techustler Course Series. You don’t want to miss this learning opportunity. 

Have you ever wondered how those beautiful apps are made?

What are the best practices and tools currently used by designers?

How can I start my career in design?

If you ever wanted to understand the space of mobile design, then take my course "Mobile App Design: From Beginner to Intermediate". I created it in a practical way so that when you finish the content you can immediately put it to use in your product.

Now, why should you design mobile apps?

Today, advanced technology needs user friendly interfaces. Developers and non-technical folks want to make their applications more appealing and easy to use. There is a reason why so many people started to use Apple products, their design is their main product selling point. Going forward, people developing products need to make sure their users have that great experience.

Another great reason is lots of companies want to hire designers. This has been a growing trend recently where UI Designers in the US make upwards of $80,000 USD. With this course, I'll teach you the relevant tools to get your product designed well, build out your designer portfolio, and land that next job in design.

This course contains over 100 lectures and 10 hrs of content. It's designed for beginners to play with new software and get a grasp at the recent design trends. You’ll learn the tools and best practices needed to be a great designer. I also throw in bonus content on getting a designer job with techniques and sample emails. 

Course Structure

The course follows a familiar structure where in each video I will teach the concepts followed by a challenge or practice question. If your goal is to become a better designer, you should understand design principles, other graphics softwares like Photoshop and build out a massive up-to-date portfolio. The course does go deep into understanding Sketch but you will need to get creative to build new UI experiences.

Environment Setup

This course aims to simulate a live in-person course as much as possible. After you finish each lecture, you should practice and try the solution on your own. You learn the best by practicing and doing. 

Projects

At the end of each section, you will be asked to quizzes or be given a challenge. When you have finished a challenge you can then post it in the Udemy discussion board or your online portfolio. 

Testimonials from other Techustler Courses and the Instructor

“Great set of videos Nick! I really liked the format of the videos with you in the corner of the screen showing us how to use the website. Cool songs you use at the beginning of each video. It really gives off the vibe that your course is hip and up-to-date with modern times. You do a great job of keeping of with the times. Stay modern, but classy at the same time Nick!” - Penelope

“Nicholas, very good course on bots! I especially enjoyed that you provided us the opportunity to build bots in a hands-on fashion. Your course sections are very organized and I didn't have to guess to know what I was getting myself into. It is clear you are very knowledgeable as an instructor and have a real connection to your course material. I look forward to taking another course with you!” - Rahul

"Nick is an aspiring tech entrepreneur with what I would consider a strong passion and desire to learn more and excel in the evolving digital age. He is an experienced programmer with a track record of creating both his own website and various mechanical devices." - Elliot

"This is a really good intro course to building simple but useful bots. Nick breaks each lesson up thoughtfully and into parts that are easy to follow and implement straight away. With modern api's to make bots from simple to highly sophisticated, this course it great for learning all the moving parts. I feel more confident in designing, building and marketing a bot myself now!" - Jason

Product Manager at Koder

Update: Join over 8,200 students in the Techustler Course Series. You don’t want to miss this opportunity in learning practical knowledge in Tech.

I’m a product manager with 4 years of experience in both web and mobile products. I have worked on professional assistant mobile applications to local business advertising solutions on the web. Until recently, I led the product team for WeBeam, a professional networking tool focused on enhancing attendees’s experiences at events. In this role, I managed the development of WeBeam from idea to live product. I created user flow diagrams and PRDs, collaborated with marketing to develop the user-interface and worked alongside engineers during development, QA, and user testing. Successes included growing pre-launch signups 5% WoW, getting featured in 13 press articles like Product Hunt and LinkedIn Pulse, and driving traffic through AEO, Twitter Scripts, and Email Lists. Previous experience includes being a marketing associate at Digablue where I researched market needs, created messaging for the company’s website, and developed HTML email campaigns.

Outside of work, I enjoy developing iOS mobile applications with 4 currently in the App Store. I help my fellow product managers through my open source Open Product Management Repo that helps technical people learn the skills to become better PMs. More recently, I starting teaching frameworks I learned at my startup through the Techustler Brand on Udemy. Topics include growth hacking, building bots, creating communities, and marketing on Twitter and Instagram.
