Why no ads?

Hi, my name is PK, and welcome to my website, almost inevitable design. I maintain and publish on this site for two reasons.

  1. To give back to the community. I learned so much from people's tutorials and StackOverflow that I wanted to contribute and help others.
  2. To provide a more structured learning experience. People struggle to find the course that guides them from start to finish, based off of real life experience, and my courses provide that.

The only "ads" I have here are for my own courses, and maybe an affiliate link, but that's it. They fund the website resources and provide more motivation for me to product better content.

Any bit of interest helps. Even sharing with your feidns, suggesting my courses to your developer or designer, or subscribing to my YT channel, or joining our Discord. Thanks and I'll see you around!
