You develop a game where you enter an art gallery with your partner at hand, and a thousand dollars in your pocket. Will you trade your way to fortune or leave empty handed?

Welcome to Geekuni

perl tutor

Conceptually, programming is simple. Learning to code is hard. Geekuni provides the following foundations to accelerate the learning process:

  • Focus on the problem to solve, rather than facts to memorise
  • Focus on a well defined skill for each problem solved
  • Get immediate feedback so you aren't held up by minor bugs
  • Get the support of your mentor and the student community

Through years of teaching in academia I found what the real blockers are in learning a new programming language. I also learnt that with the right approach and support each step of the way you can avoid those blockers. Placing this knowledge in the context of online learning, Geekuni helps you acquire real-world coding skills - quickly!
