Jetpack Compose internals goes cohort-based

Last edition of the Jetpack Compose and internals online training went SOLD OUT in a month 🎊. Demand is high, and I’d love to let more people in, but I can’t do it at the expense of content quality and user experience. For this reason, I have decided to take the training one step further and make it cohort-based.
I think this is the next natural step to open it up for more people, and does not necessarily mean to lose the benefits of live courses. Cohort courses have some interesting benefits:
These courses normally span over N weeks, so the group progresses over the course together. Attendees share a common goal, and interact with each other and the trainer to achieve it. This implies strong community building, since all the attendees in a cohort start and finish the course together. This helps students feel more engaged with the content and the group, and motivated, as they work towards their goals alongside a supportive group of peers.
This makes it a great option for complete teams that want to take the course together.
Another great point from cohort-based courses is flexibility. This type of courses can be more flexible than the traditional live ones, as students can access course materials and assignments on their own schedule. This can be helpful for students who have busy schedules or access from different time zones. They also allow students to consume at their own pace if they cannot or don’t want to follow the group for any reason.
I can offer as many cohorts as needed, so I can accommodate people from different timezones.
Live courses used to be 10 hours long, which is quite limited with the huge amount of topipcs I wanted to cover. Spanning the course over 8 weeks allows me to fit as much content as I want, making the training really complete. The content has been revamped to go further and deeper into the Compose api surface and its internals.
More effective support
Instructor support can also be better/more personalized, since the course spans over N weeks, which gives the instructor more time to prepare for each one and interact with the people. It is also easier to separate concerns and identify the pain points for the students to address them efficiently.
Cohort-based courses can provide networking opportunities for students, as they connect with devs who share similar interests or goals. This can be especially valuable for students who are looking to make career connections or want to explore new fields.
Best way to know if the content is good is to read opinions from previous attendees.
