The following is a note from Zubin himself about a course he just launched. Note that freeCodeCamp.org does not receive any benefit from this, and has not reviewed his course - we just want to help him publicize it.
Zubin was a non-technical person for a long time, and set a goal to become his own tech cofounder. But he quit from discouragement twice. It was much harder than it should've been, and Zubin put together a course on all the things he wish he'd known and all the techniques that made him not quit the third time. In 3 hours you can learn the roadmap that could save you months, thousands of dollars, and a lot of stress.For podcast listeners, Zubin has a special promotion.
