How To Become A Programmer Without A Degree & Experience

Not required a college degree doesn’t mean you can acquire skills for FREE

First of all, thank you so much for subscribing to my YouTube channel, signing up for my course, commenting… everything! I’ll reply as much as possible 🙂


Lately, I start buckling down to create new tutorial series, especially paid ones for people who want to take their coding skills to the next level. However, some people don’t feel comfortable about it. (I guess it’s because I share some part of the videos for free and sell the rest of them.)


On my website, I’m telling that you don’t need a college degree to become a programmer.
However, it doesn’t mean you can acquire skills for free.


I calculated how much money I spent on learning how to code for the past five years.
(I’m still learning every day!)

The total cost was about $3500.
($2900 for online courses. $600 for books.)

It means I’ve spent $58 per month or $1.9 per day.
It’s clearly cheaper than college tuition.

I think it’s not bad. What do you think?


My courses are around $29 ~ $39, and I understand these aren’t accessible for all people.
So, I’ll keep creating free videos, too.
But if you’re wondering about purchasing the course, please try it.

For me, it took a few months to develop my first game app like Catch the Ball,
but you can do it within a few hours because I can show you the shortcut.

You don’t need to waste a lot of time like me.
So, why don’t you try it? It’s gonna be fun!

    There are a couple of sayings, “you get what you pay for” & “it takes money to make money”.Just watching videos on YouTube channels are cool and informative, but you cannot rely solely on them alone. I have not calculated My actual spenditures over the course of 3 years but I would estimate about 1K.

    PS I did guess YOUR total of $3,500 correctly though 😛

      Thomas, thanks for your comment 🙂
      I totally agree that “you get what you pay for” & “it takes money to make money”
      I wrote this post because I don’t want learners to hesitate to invest in themselves.
      And, good guess!! I think you did guess it correctly because we’re investing in ourselves in the same way!
