Here are a few of our Fantastic Testimonials

"I changed careers in late 2016 from banking to software development. I started off with basic knowledge of HTML, CSS and a bit of Javascript. When I go my first job, I was overwhelmed by the fact that they were using Java with MySQL in the Backend. I had never used this stack before and was barely able to understand what a "Class" was. Your courses in SQL and OOP with Java helped me immensely to navigate the codebase. I could finally "see" the implemented patterns and understand and write my own SQL queries. From then on, I was able to start pumping out features. Fast forward a few years and I am now a Senior Developer. Thank you so much for your courses! It helped me to keep motivated and grow as a developer."

- Nelson Fleig, Senior Full Stack Developer @ MSVT

"I used Job Ready Programmer to greatly improve my SQL skills and learn new Tableau skills for my current Data Analyst career. I intend to utilize the Java and other courses as I transition my career into a Full Stack Developer."

- Michelle B, Managed Care & Value Based Analyst @ Eskenazi Health

"I wanted to take a moment to share my feedback on the Oracle course I completed under your guidance. The course has been an invaluable experience for me, significantly contributing to my professional growth and enhancing my abilities in the SQL ecosystem. First and foremost, the course provided me with a comprehensive understanding of the database technology stack. From the fundamentals to the advanced concepts, I appreciated the structured approach taken in delivering the course material. The clarity and depth of the content allowed me to grasp complex topics with ease, filling gaps in my knowledge and empowering me to tackle real-world challenges more effectively. In conclusion, I am immensely grateful for the course and the impact it has had on my workplace and career. Once again, thank you for providing such an enriching learning experience. I highly recommend this course to anyone seeking to enhance their Oracle expertise and achieve professional growth."

"JRP was a huge help. The beginning where you separated the 2 routes (Analyst vs. Engineer) helped users sift through what they needed to learn. I first wanted to go analyst, which I used to land a job as a Business Analyst at a top fashion company. This showed me how to use SQL and some Python, from start to finish. What I mean by that is you gave clear instructions in a calm voice, on how to get started from scratch (IDE setup, fundamentals, and providing simple case studies). What was REALLY helpful was that you would constantly provide little caveats/hints/tips that only a seasoned engineer/analyst would know. This is very important. I then started your engineer route, and although I did not stick fully through that like I did the analyst route, it was a huge help in getting started with code and its fundamentals as well. I was able to create my own mini-projects, then finally graduated to implementing distributed systems and creating more projects. Finally, with the push from your courses, I started grinding Leetcode to prepare for interviews. The tl;dr here is that your content holds the user's hand early, provides challenging questions for a beginner, and gives information that they wouldn't be able to easily find otherwise on the internet unless they specifically knew what they were asking. In fact, I still to this day refer your jobreadyprogrammer courses to friends who are interested in getting into the programming/analyst route."

I took your SQL and Spring course at the beginning of my career and I found your videos comparatively self-starter for any fresher who is starting with some basic knowledge. So it has helped me a lot to learn basics and improve my fundamentals.

I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude for your incredible Java course. Your expertise and dedication as an instructor have made a profound impact on my learning experience. Your course was not only comprehensive and well-structured but also delivered in a way that made complex concepts easy to understand. The clarity of your explanations, the practical examples you provided, and the hands-on exercises truly helped me grasp the intricacies of Java programming. It helped me to learn how things actually work and understand design patterns. But then after your course, I moved to the apna app from mmt here I am working on go lang and Python.

I took Imtiaz Ahmad’s course ‘Practical Data Structures & Algorithms in Java + HW’ which helped me a lot in grasping knowledge in Data Structure & Algorithms in Java. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for coding interview preparation.

The "Master SQL for Data Science" course enabled me to gain a fundamental understanding of SQL query structure and statement execution logic, something I was oblivious to during my initial days of studying SQL. I was also able to get "into the mind of the query engine" which helped me understand how to better structure and optimize my queries. The course is highly recommended for anyone wishing to improve their SQL querying (DML) knowledge. Happy to let you know that I now own and manage our team's Postgres db at work, which supports our internal applications :)

The Complete Oracle SQL Certification Course helped with my studies and also got me a head-start in my career. The course content is lucid and designed to help those who are studying SQL for the first time as well as people who take the course for improvement and revision. Looking forward to more such advanced courses from your team.

Your course was a great refresher in SQL for me. It helped me immensely to solidify the base in writing effective SQL queries which I pretty much do in my day to day job as big data engineer. It also made me confident in my job and helps immensely in creating efficient and quality data processing applications. I still go back to my course notes whenever needed. Thank you again for providing such an excellent course.

Your courses be it Java, be it Data structure or SQL and database, every course is structured so well and your teaching style is really good, when it comes to explaining you are very articulate. I switched to Technical Support field it doesn't demand much of any specific skills other than troubleshooting stuff. But I'll visit your SQL course again since I am interested to pursue data engineering. Thanks for providing best courses!

Have a blessed rest of your day and look forward to hearing from you 🙏🏾

What We Stand For

You can’t learn programming from reading books or online fill-in-the-blank type tutorials. Especially the online tutorials with browser based exercises where you code directly in your browser. The problem with that approach is that it doesn’t provide practical experience. It provides an illusion of learning something as it tugs you along to complete an assignment that’s more of a fill-in-the-blank type problem. A student feels like they’ve learned something but that knowledge does not stick. Unfortunately that experience will not help in an interview nor an actual project. Valuable time ends up going to complete waste. At JRP (JobReadyProgrammer), we don’t follow hype. We do what works! We take a traditional route to teaching how to code advancing slowly & patiently in the lectures often repeating key concepts in multiple different ways to help students really solidify the knowledge and mold their foundation to discover how to code properly and then boy do we test the skills! Students are put right in the middle of a practical real-world programming assignment to apply everything they've learned. So enough of those “key in the next few commands to fill in the puzzle and we’ll advance you” kind of tutorials. Here you’ll need to roll up your sleeves and get to work on solving practical programming assignments. This site offer’s a chance to gain practical experience you can take to your interview and feel confident in your abilities. Every assignment is followed by a detailed video solution breaking down the problem and going over the answer step-by-step so you really get it!
