On this page, I answer some of the frequently asked questions about my courses.
Where can I see a full list of courses?
You can see the full list of courses here.
Is there a way to search course lessons?
Unfortunately, the online course platform I use (Teachable) doesn't support this feature out of the box. As a somewhat less efficient substitute, I have created a way to search across course titles here. You can use the search box on that page. The information might be slightly out of date occasionally, but I do my best to keep it up to date.
Do you offer discounts?
Yes, sometimes I do. They are not on any predictable schedule though.
For example, recently, I had a 30% off discount for my Core Dialogflow course bundle.
The easiest way to be notified of discounts is to join my email newsletter, which you can do by registering for my online course platform, at which point you are also signed up to my email newsletter.
What is Free-to-watch vs Free-to-buy
Let us consider the Dialogflow Knowledge Connectors course.
Notice that some videos can be previewed for free, i.e. free-to-watch. While other videos can only be viewed once you buy the course.
In contrast, all the videos in the Dialogflow Building Blocks course were free to watch during second half of May 2020. So the entire course was free-to-watch.
But the course still displayed a price.
That's what I mean when I say free-to-watch, but not free-to-buy.
What is so different about your courses?
In my view, my courses are the best ones for technical non-programmers who want to build Dialogflow bots.
There are three reasons for this:
Since the conversation layer - which is the same as Dialogflow's web interface - is something that you can easily update without asking your developer, this means there is less need to rely on your developer for minor changes to your bot.
As a consequence, you will have a much better idea of what is going on in your chatbot.
2 There are some features that make your Dialogflow bot harder to maintain without writing code. In turn, this means you need to rely even more on your developer. Throughout my courses, I explain how to build Dialogflow bots without using such features.
3 I have developed, over a fairly long period of time, a very consistent and methodical approach to designing conversation flowcharts. These flowcharts can be designed by non-programmers and handed over as "project specifications" to your developer. This reduces the time it takes to design your chatbot, and also provides an artifact (the flowchart) that you can use to review the progress of your bot's development.
