How many of us so badly want to get away from that routine job and work on our cool startup idea? But still, how many of us shy away from the whole deal as we feel we are strangers in the world of startups and have no clue where to begin?
The newest course offered by Stanford University might be the one that may change your life. Startup Engineering aims to guide you through the process of building and scaling a startup from the ground up.
Startup Engineering is a 10 week course focusing 50% on technology and 50% on the philosophy behind startups. Besides from the usual video lectures and course notes, the students are required to complete weekly programming assignments and finish the final project – a crowdfunding site based on bitcoin and SelfStarter. Lectures are conducted by Balaji S. Srinivasan and Vijay S. Pande from Stanford University. About 100,000 students have already registered and the forums are filled with energy and enthusiasm from all over the world.
The course is available for free on Coursera. It just started (on 17th of June) and you can join within the coming days to make sure you aren’t missed out.
