I'm a passionate software consultant and programmer of enterprise software architectures. I've spent a considerable amount of time building financial software on Wall St. and worked for companies like S&P, Goldman Sachs, AOL along with helping various startups solve mission critical software problems. In my 13 years of experience, I've developed massive enterprise level software using programming languages like Java, C++, Python, PL/SQL and Ruby. I've learned many lessons along the way, and I hope to share this knowledge with aspiring software developers. I've always had a passion for teaching in seminars and corporations during my consulting projects. Eliminate Code Fear gives me the opportunity to share my knowledge with students of all backgrounds and experiences across the globe! I'm really excited for this opportunity to bring to you real-world practical experience! Join my initiative and we'll work together to bring out the best programmer in you!
"I just wish I’d found this sooner as it has made learning Java incredibly easy so far. Imtiaz explains things very well, and he goes over them numerous times just to ensure that the viewer knows exactly what is going on. I’ve always had difficulty with concepts like polymorphism and LSP, finally an instructor that pulled me through! Simply Awesome! Thank you!" - NATHAN CASSIDY
"This really is a fantastic resource. Comparing my own solutions to the instructor’s is enlightening! Learned so much in such a short period of time. The exercises are really improving my logic. Awesome courses Imtiaz!!! Looking forward to start the more advanced OOP course as well. Can’t wait!"- PIERRE GADEA
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 ECF, we don’t follow hype. We do what works! We take a traditional route to teaching how to code! Here we advance slowly & patiently in the lectures often repeating key concepts in multiple different ways to really help you solidify the knowledge and mold your foundation so you can discover how to code properly and then boy do we test the skills you gain! We throw you in the middle of a practical programming assignment so you can apply everything you 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!
