I’ll give my two cents on the Profitable Programmer Course by Rafeh Qazi. This article is neither a sponsored article nor an affiliate post. I want to say my honest thoughts about this course so that it could help someone who is looking to take the course.
Profitable Programmer is a full-stack web development course created by Rafeh Qazi, the founder of Clever Programmer. I’ll tell you about my experience with this course from the start. This story happened in 2016. I was starting with learning Python during that time.
I saw some Clever Programmer videos on YouTube, and I got interested in the way Qazi teaches. He has a lot of passion and energy while talking. He didn’t bore me like the computer science teachers in my college did (not everyone). So, I binge-watched all of his YouTube videos and learned Python pretty well. That was the time when he brought the profitable programmer masterclass for the first time.
Profitable programmer masterclass is a free 3-part video series that will give you a general idea about freelancing with Python. I really enjoyed that masterclass, and later, he conducted a live webinar to launch his product(Profitable Programmer Course).
I was very eager to buy that course, and I eagerly watched the whole product launch. But, I was very disappointed after the launch, because of the price of the course. It was 497 USD, and it was a huge amount for me, especially at that time.
For some of you, it might not be a big deal. But, for me, a jobless student, it was a big deal at that time. So, I didn’t buy that course. Instead, I bought the 50$ Python OOP course from Clever Programmer.
OOP course was one of their first courses. For all those who purchased that course when he launched it for the first time, Qazi gifted the profitable programmer course. Even though I wasn’t one of the first customers of the OOP course, they sent me free access to the profitable programmer course. It was a mistake, and they found it out very soon. They revoked my access at the end of the month.
That was my first look at the profitable programmer course, and honestly, I really liked the content of the course. As the name suggests, this course is for programmers who want to make money by freelancing.
It might not be the best course out there specifically for web development with Django. If you are only looking to improve your Django skills, I won’t recommend this course. It’s not a Django course, it’s a programming course, kind of a complete package.
Oh, the coolest part is that you’ll get a chance to do some amazing projects. If you complete this course, you’ll at least have a portfolio of projects to show your clients. Talking about the portfolio, he’ll teach you to create one in one of the modules. My favorite part is the Profit with Python module, where he teaches the basics of freelancing. That’s the valuable part of this course for me since I already knew other technologies that he teaches in this course.
But for a beginner, it is a great course, a great package of all the things needed to become a freelancer. After looking at the content, I could say that there is value inside the course. 497$ is still worrying me. It is expensive. But if you have the money to invest, go for it. If you are frugal, don’t take the course. Consume everything there on the web for free.
One of the most precious modules in this course is the Profitable Programmer vault. This module consists of hours of interviews with great software developers and successful entrepreneurs. It is really a great package of value. You’ll get a community as well, a Facebook group, to communicate with other programmers in the course.
This course is not always open for enrollment. Qazi launches this course only once or twice a year. If you’re looking to buy this course, I would suggest you follow his channel. During the first few days of the launch, or on some random days, Qazi might give a 100$ off. If you are lucky, you can save some bucks.
Overall, I think this course is a great beginning for aspiring web developers and freelancers. I can promise at least one thing. You won’t get bored with this course. Qazi is really a fun guy, and he’s pretty good at teaching. So, if you have some money to invest in your career, enroll in this amazing course, and you’ll enjoy it. Even if you didn’t like it, you can ask for your money back and you’ll get all the money. There’s a money-back guarantee, so there’s nothing to lose.
If you’re interested, go to the clever programmer website to see more details about this course. Again, this is not a sponsored post. This is just my thoughts on one of the premium courses available on the Internet for Pythonistas.
If you don’t have the money, no worries. You’ll get all this information for free on the Internet. But, you might need to invest some time to filter the right information in the best order. That’s what you get with paid courses.
If you’re not sure about spending 497 dollars on this course, I would suggest you check out the article I’ve written on the Best Udemy Courses To Learn Python. You can find extremely cheap but high-quality Python courses there.
If you can put in the effort to find out the right information that you need, you won’t need any courses. Almost every technology in the world has some official documentation. It’s tough. It’s a bit geeky. If you’re a geek enough to follow those, then you can succeed without the help of any courses.
Everything is there on the internet for free, but for most people, it’s overwhelming. If you can invest some money in courses like these, you can avoid the bad information and consume only what you want in the right order in an easy way.
