We create and host a series of open courses for Computer Science (CS) and Information Technology (IT). These courses do not have start date or end date. You can join, pause and continue any time. This gives you freedom but require self drive and motivation.  For subscribers we provide live-classes now and then using Discord video conferences.

Curriculum

We organize courses in two categories: Computer Science (CS) and Information Technology (IT). Each course has one main page with links to video lectures, articles and external references. Our courses are informative and light-weight. You can follow one course in less then a week. We do not have homework and you study in your own pace.
