Description

This is our (ADVANCE TRAINING)

I have been using an apple Macbook (Pro) for over 5 years now. The most intriguing tools were the new settings, functions and capabilities that PC did not offer.

I would spend days studying shortcuts, system preferences, and everything the Mac had to offer including iMovie, Garage Band, Calendar, Contacts, Photo Booth, iPhoto and every program on the Mac (some external programs)

This course is for people who are new to Mac. My main focus is to show you common functions that you can and will relate to on a daily basis. Throughout this course you will learn simple functions that will excel you to a level that will accelerate your usage on your Mac.

The structure of my course I'm offering you is an step by step process on how to use mac, however once you complete the course you will always have a quick reference guide of straight to the point tutorials for your specific needs.

We will also keep you up to date with live events as a member. We will continuously add more lectures as an added bonus. There will also be live events for Q&A on my online course.

Who is the target audience?
  • PC Users
  • Converting to Mac
  • Macintosh Users
  • Beginners
  • Debating on Mac vs.PC

Web developer doing awesome things online!

I am a Gemini and what they say is true- Gemini's do have split personalities. For me, one of my personalities is good and the other is better. I am a web developer by day and graphic designer by night.

Coffee and serious dedication have kept me going over the past few years. I am always looking to learn more and more. I am constantly sharpening and developing my skills by using tools like Udemy. You can always learn from others in your field. That’s why a website like Udemy has been needed for a very long time. It’s useful for connecting with other people who share your skill and learning from them.

Be aware of all of the resources out there that can help you with your skill and don’t be afraid to try something new. I learned a lot on Udemy but once I took the leap of faith to use Dreamweaver I haven’t looked back. Now I don’t have to write too much code because the program does a lot of the work for me. As for Photoshop, I learnt 95 per cent of my skills from Udemy.
