Hello, my name is Llorenç Muntaner, and I am launching this project: GIMTEC.
In 2014, at 30 years old, I decided to learn to code in App Academy, a development bootcamp in Silicon Valley. My curiosity for computer science and programming didn't stop; it just started. I kept on studying to get to the bottom of how computers and libraries work. I have searched for that knowledge in books, conferences, and courses.
GIMTEC is the resource I wish I had when I finished my bootcamp.
There hasn’t been a single year when I haven’t taught at one bootcamp or another, from Ironhack, Codeworks, or Propulsion Academy
Self-taught developers and bootcamp alumni are unique specimens in educational terms. We can develop anything needed, but we didn't acquire the fundamental knowledge on how things work inside. Most resources on the internet focus on how to use tools and libraries. On the other hand, the most theoretical knowledge is still mainly taught in universities. But who has the time and energy to go on a five-year college degree?
The articles at GIMTEC link the tools and technologies we use every day with fundamental topics of Computer Science.
With GIMTEC, I am trying to fill that gap. I will explain how computers work, with the prerequisite that you already know how to code. This prerequisite will speed up the learning process and allow us to go faster and deeper than in regular college courses. For example, we won’t just learn what logic gates are, but we will build a simulator for logic gates. How fun is that?
GIMTEC consists of two parts, the Newsletter, and the Courses.
In the newsletter, I will write about the relationships between the tools and technologies we use every day, with the fundamentals of Computer science.
If you like the newsletter, you are going to fall in love with the courses. They are project-based and rely heavily on coding to learn the concepts.
If you are interested only in the courses leave the email below. This won't subscribe you to the newsletter, but I will keep you posted when a course is available.
