About

Who am I? 

My name is Tim Moreton and my story started 5 years ago when I decided Product Development wasn't the career path for me, I was more interested in the programmers that were coding. I started to teach my self how to code and that combined with a coding bootcamp brought me to where I am today as a Software Engineer, Teacher & Entrepreneur. I know how valuable online learning resources are when learning how to code so I want to create courses that can help others through that sometimes frustrating learning process. 

What I want to build?

The most important thing that I have learned myself from going from zero coding knowledge to a software engineer is that building your own projects is the best and fastest way to learn code. Whether you go in knowing nothing to an engineer with 10 years experience, the field of programming changes so much and so quickly there is always room to learn new things. 

While I have already created a course where I teach programmers to learn how to build Tinder with hundreds of students and growing, there are aspects of the course I want to improve and features to add from the feedback I have received to create a separate much more detailed course on how to build an Instagram replica with React Native. In this course I will create hours of content with step by step video tutorials on why certain methods were used and code associated with each new feature.

Why Instagram?

I chose Instagram because they actually use the same technology of React Native to build the app as well. We will learn how to build a fully functioning app that with features that are re-useable in any type of personal app you want to build of your own. From logging in users with email/Facebook, taking/saving photos from users, allowing user profile creation, sharing and sharing permissions along with location based posting with the Google Maps API. These re just some of the features we will cover in depth & line by line to get a clear understanding of how everything works together.

What's the project timeline?

I love creating courses and helping people learning how to code but sometimes it's difficult to get a good understanding of courses that people are actually interested. By hitting this Kickstarter goal I will be able to put 100% of my time and effort into creating the best possible course within a month of the kickstarter end date. 

But why?

I love programming and teaching people programming as well but their are a ton of severely lacking courses. My goal is to continue creating great courses for all levels now and far in the future!

Risks and challenges

I have already created quite a few successful courses and also some failed ones so I have learned what it takes to create not only educational content but entertaining was well to help people continue on course. I have created Zero To Startup in 30 Days found at my website Useful.ly where I help people with zero coding knowledge to learn how to create their own website, blog and eCommerce storefront. For other more experienced developers I created a course where I teach people how to build a Tinder iPhone app with React Native.
