Derek Sivers, founder of CDBaby, is a coding entrepreneur. He learned how to do it all from scratch and launched a multi-million dollar marketplace to help artists everywhere get their CDs sold. This was 1998. Before most current web technologies and great frameworks like Django. Sivers is an unusual coding entrepreneur because he never really considered himself a "programmer" or "entrepreneur" -- instead, Sivers saw there was something he wanted to do and figured out how to do it. The word "Entrepreneur" is thrown around so much and has even spawned the word "Wantrapreneur" for those who talk but never take action. It's time to throwaway the notion and labels. All we need is action. This course, is the pinnacle of the Coding for Entrepreneurs series. We've learned so much from the 85k+ strong CFE community, that has help shaped this class into a improved version of the original. Join us, while you learn to craft your own CDBaby for the modern day. Join us, to continue cultivating the mindset of "whatever needs to get done, I'll figure out to make it happen." Cheers. Justin Who this course is for:
- Non-Technical Entrepreneurs, Artists, Graphic Designers
- Anyone interested in learning programming
It all started with an idea. I wanted freedom... badly. Freedom from work, freedom from boredom, and, most of all, the freedom to choose. This simple idea grew to define me; it made me become an entrepreneur.
As I strived to gain freedom, overtime I realized that with everything that you do you can either (1) convince someone, somehow, to do it with you or (2) figure out how to do it yourself.
Due to a lack of financial resources (and probably the ability to convince people to do high quality work for free), I decided to learn. Then learn some more. Then some more. My path of learning website design started a long time ago. And yes, it was out of need not desire. I believed I needed a website for a company that I started. So I learned how to do it. The company died, my skills lived on... and got better and better.
It took me a while after learning web design (html/css) to actually start learning programming (web application, storing "data", user logins, etc). I tinkered with Wordpress, believing it could be a "user" site, but I was mistaken. Sure there are/were hacks for that, but they were hacks/work-arounds and simply not-what-wordpress-was-indended-to-be. Wordpress is for blogs/content. Plain and simple.
I wanted more. I had a web application idea that I thought would change the way restaurants hire their service staff. I tested it with my basic html/css skills, had great initial results, and found a technical (programmer) cofounder as
