ATTENTION C# DEVELOPERS!

FUTURE-PROOF YOUR CAREER WITH MACHINE LEARNING

GIVE ME 6 WEEKS AND I’LL GIVE YOU THE AI SKILLS THAT WILL LAND YOU A PROMOTION IN SIX MONTHS

DO IT ALL WITHOUT LEARNING MATH OR PYTHON

LET ME ASK YOU THIS…


Do you feel stuck in your software developer career? Are you overwhelmed by everything you need to learn? Is your work boring and uninspiring?

 

It wasn’t always like this….

 

I remember the early 90’s when software developers were treated like rock stars.

I was fresh out of University, and I was amazed to see software developers drive convertibles, earn top salaries, and walk around as if they owned the place!

 

It reminds me of airline pilots back in the 50’s, you remember that? They were like rock stars. But today, pilots are just glorified bus drivers pushing buttons. And developers? We sure aren’t rock stars anymore. We have become a commodity.

 

So, what happened? How did we lose it all?

 

Well, globalization happened.

 

Globalization has opened up the world. Companies can hire from anywhere in the world, and developers can accept jobs anywhere in the world.

 

Next time you’re applying for a job, think about 24-year old Manish from Mumbai who has a nice coding job at an Indian tech firm. Manish has the same academic credentials that you have. He has the same coding skills that you have. And he’s willing to work for less than $10 per hour.

 

Who do you think the job will go to?

 

You are no longer competing with just the people in your neighborhood. You’re now competing with every available developer on the planet.

 

Here are some Upwork stats from 2017. Upwork is one of the largest freelance marketplaces in the world:

The average project costs is only $282 and it takes 5 weeks on average to complete a project. So, that’s an average hourly freelancer wage of only one dollar and forty cents!

 

Heck, you can make more money flipping burgers at McDonalds!

 

Let’s face it, software development has become a commodity. It is no longer a niche job and there are literally millions of developers all over the planet today able to do the same coding work as you.

 

It’s like you’re a shark…

 

You’re swimming in the ocean, hunting for fish to eat.

 

But wait! You look around and discover that you’re literally surrounded by thousands of other sharks, all hunting for the same fish.

 

You need to work very hard to get your fish because you’re in brutal competition with all the other sharks. It’s a massive frenzy all around you and the water is turning red.

WE CALL THIS A RED OCEAN

and you really don't want to be in one!

Red Oceans are markets with high demand and supply. This drives wages down.

 

When you’re in a Red Ocean, pay is low, job security is nonexistent, and you need to work hard night and day to stay afloat.

 

Many once-lucrative developer niches like Backend Developer, SQL Developer, Web Developer, and Mobile Developer have now moved into the Red Ocean today.

 

You really don’t want to be in a red ocean!

 

So, what can you do?

 

The solution is to pick a niche in a Blue Ocean.

 

A Blue Ocean is a big empty ocean, packed with fish, but you are the only shark in sight. There’s no competition so you can eat the fish you want, whenever you want.

 

Blue Oceans have high demand, low competition, high wages, and absolutely great job security.

STEP INTO A BLUE OCEAN

WHEN YOU'RE IN A BLUE OCEAN...


  • Out of the blue, recruiters and potential employers start calling you to offer new work. 

  • Your start earning more than your peers.

  • The boss invites you to lead your own project team.

  • Your friends keep asking how you were able to afford that new convertible.

  • You are never worried about losing your job. 

  • You can say no to job offers that are not a perfect fit.

THIS IS WHY YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO IGNORE MACHINE LEARNING


Machine Learning is a specialization of AI that focuses on training neural networks to perform intelligent tasks, like recognizing faces, reading emotions, understanding spoken text, generating written text, and so on.

 

Machine Learning is crazy popular right now. Take a look at this graph from Indeed, a job search engine. It shows the volume of job ads with ‘Machine Learning’ in the title over a 5-year period:

Look at that growth in 2017!

 

Neural networks are the technology behind Machine Learning, and they have been around for ages: the first practical network was built in 1958!

 

But only recently with modern GPUs are we able to run large networks to solve complex problems that we’ve never been able to solve before.

 

Big companies are investing heavily in machine learning. All the top engineers have been scooped up by Google, Facebook, Apple, and Microsoft. These people are earning 6-figure salaries.

“After hearing about neural networks for years without actually using them, I am proud to say I have successfully trained and used my first neural network – in C#. Thank you so much, Mark. Neural Networks are ridiculously awesome.”

Joel Dokmegang, course student

MICROSOFT IS BETTING BIG

ON MACHINE LEARNING


Until recently, Microsoft did not feature prominently in the Machine Learning landscape at all. All the attention has been going to the Python language and Google’s TensorFlow library, neither of which are key Microsoft technologies.

 

But all that changed in 2017, when Microsoft decided to go all in on Machine Learning.

 

Since then, they’ve released a ton of new tools and technologies:

  • Azure Machine Learning

     a service to train, deploy, automate, and manage machine learning models at cloud scale

  • Cognitive Services

     intelligent services to see, hear, speak, understand and interpret user needs

  • BOT Framework

    A comprehensive framework for building conversational AI apps and experiences

  • ML.NET

    An open source and cross-platform machine learning framework designed for .NET

  • Cognitive Toolkit

    An open-source toolkit for commercial-grade distributed deep learning.

  • Azure ML Studio

    Build, test and deploy machine learning models without writing a single line of code

And many of these tools and libraries now come with full C# language support.

 

So now you have a unique opportunity.

 

Microsoft has fully embraced Machine Learning, which means C# developers can now add it to their skill set.

 

And all the top-experts are working for big companies, which has left the job market almost empty. A lot of smaller companies are now complaining that they are unable to hire good Machine Learning experts.

 

Do you realize what this means?

 

Machine Learning has become a Blue Ocean niche. It’s a massive opportunity!

 

And remember all those mobile app developers building iOS apps a decade ago?

 

The market was huge, you could easily make a fortune creating a new app and selling it online.

 

But those days have come and gone. Today, very few mobile apps will ever recoup their development costs.

 

Opportunity cycles like this one come and go, and they never last very long.

 

You do not want to miss the boat this time!

 

BUT UP UNTIL NOW, MASTERING MACHINE LEARNING HAS BEEN A VERY TOUGH CHALLENGE!


Here's how long it would take an average developer to gain full entry into the field of machine learning:

  • WAIT 4 YEARS

    Become a senior developer

    In many companies, only the senior developers or team leaders are allowed to choose a career niche. As a junior developer, you’re expected to keep your head down and do the work you’re told to do you until you finally reach the freedom of the senior level.

     

    That’s at least 4 years of hard work to get yourself to senior level.

  • WAIT 4 YEARS

    Get a math PhD

    Next, you would have to master advanced mathematics to be able to understand the mathematics behind the most popular Machine Learning algorithms.

     

    So let’s add another 4 years to hit the books and get a PhD in math.

  • WAIT 2 YEARS

    Study academic papers

    Next, you would have to spend many years studying lots of academic papers to get up to speed and learn all the hot new technologies in machine learning: CNNs, RNNs, GANs, and much more.

     

    So let’s add another 2 years for studying papers.

  • WAIT 2 YEARS

    Learn Python

    And finally, you would discover that all machine learning research is done in Python. As a C# developer, you would have to learn a second language.

     

    Let’s add another 2 years to make the switch and learn the Python language.

12 YEARS? THAT’S JUST CRAZY!

But look at my career:

 

I spent 6 years getting my Masters in Physics and learn math. Then another 4 years to become a senior developer. And I spent one year studying machine learning papers and learning Python.

 

See? That’s 11 years of hard work.

 

But now I’m going to let you in on a secret.

 

I studied the math behind machine learning, and I was amazed to discover that most of it is actually really simple. I can teach you the basics in only 10 minutes.

 

I have a bit of a knack for explaining complicated subjects in simple terms and in a very short amount of time.

 

Check out what Oliver Yu, one of my students, has to say about me:

“Mark goes through clearly and succinctly in 10 minute lectures what would take an entire college class to discuss.”

Oliver Yu, course student

With my help, you really don’t need a PhD in math anymore to get started with machine learning.

 

And here’s another secret:

Building machine learning apps is actually really easy today!

 

Check out this little Alexa app that I built in only 2 days. It’s voice-controlled, searches for whatever I ask for, and describes the search result back at me.

Isn’t that amazing? And it’s only 250 lines of code!

 

And here’s something else that will blow your mind:

This app is 100% C# code!

 

Can you believe that? You no longer need to learn Python to build machine learning apps.

 

I built my C# app in mere hours using Microsoft Cognitive Services, a collection of amazing pre-trained neural networks hosted in the cloud.

 

I was just blown away by my discoveries. Machine learning was so much easier than I expected, and I was amazed to learn that building cool apps was just a piece of cake.

 

I had to tell the world about my discovery. So, I decided to create a new course:

THE MACHINE LEARNING ADVANTAGE

THE FIRST ONLINE PROGRAM TO TEACH C# DEVELOPERS HOW TO CREATE CUTTING-EDGE MACHINE LEARNING APPS​

This course will teach you how to build amazing C# machine learning apps.

 

So now you don’t have to wait until you are senior and your company gives you an opportunity to pick a niche. You can get started today by taking my course.

 

Let’s take another look at that 12-year machine learning journey:

  • NO NEED TO WAIT UNTIL YOU'RE SENIOR

    You can start building machine learning apps today. There's no need to wait until you're a senior developer.

  • NO NEED TO GET A PhD

    You don't need advanced mathematics to get started with machine learning. So scratch that PhD off your list.

  • NO NEED TO STUDY PAPERS

    You don't need to study academic papers. You can use hot new technologies like CNNs, RNNs, and GANs today.

  • NO NEED TO LEARN PYTHON

    You don't need to learn Python. You can write all your machine learning apps in C# today.

With the Machine Learning Advantage, your journey is reduced to zero years!

 

You don’t have to wait 12 years, you can hit the ground running today!

 

And I’m going to make another bold claim:

 

I will get you fully up to speed creating and running machine learning applications in C# in only 6 weeks!

 

You know how I’m going to do that? By helping you build new machine learning apps every day of the course!

 

This is called ‘learning by doing’. It will keep you engaged and help you learn new skills at an amazing pace.

 

By the end of the 6-week course, you’ll have covered more ground than you would have after months of studying books.

 

And this will have a dramatic effect on your career. You will be positioning yourself firmly in the blue ocean.

LET'S DO A QUICK VISUALIZATION


Close your eyes…

 

Imagine that it’s June  2020. You’ve finished the course and you are now able to build complex machine learning apps.

 

Your company has taken notice.

 

The CTO calls you in for a meeting and tells you that he needs you to spearhead a strategic project. This means a big pay raise, of course. Your next paycheck is 20% larger.

 

You are now leading a team of developers. They respect you, and look to you for guidance. Together, you and your team build a machine learning app that has everyone talking.

 

How does this feel?

 

When you look in the mirror, what do you see? How do you feel about yourself?

 

How does the world see you now?

By now you might be thinking: who is this guy, and who does he think he is to be making such bold claims?

 

Hi, I'm Mark Farragher. Pleased to meet you!

My disposition

SHARING AND JOYFUL

Yes, that’s me in the first photo. In my previous life, I used to be a paraglider pilot!

 

But here’s the thing. I’ve always been at the forefront of innovation throughout my entire career.

 

Did you know I built a YouTube before there was a YouTube?

 

It’s true!

 

My business partner and I had a fully-functional YouTube prototype in 2004. We called it NuVid and we spent a year trying to sell it to mobile phone companies.

 

I can still remember an O2 executive telling me to my face: “this will never work” :)

 

I built lots of other cool stuff too:

There’s a lot of ‘firsts’ in my career.

 

I’m very good at spotting trends and identifying the perfect moment to step in.

 

When C# and .NET hit the market in 2001, I realized this was going to be huge. I went all in and became a C# specialist.

 

In 2008 I realized that cloud computing was becoming going to become a massive success. So, I built a cloud datacenter for my startup and we used it to host our client’s online shops.

 

In 2017, I realized that machine learning is going to be the next big thing. So I decided to go all in again.

 

And I’ve always loved teaching. I applied for a Microsoft Trainer certification way back in 2005.

 

I remember my certification exam, I had to teach a class on camera in front of my training instructor. After I was done, I was eager for feedback. But my instructor only said: “okay, you’ve got this”

 

Turns out I was a natural!

 

I’ve taught in hundreds of classrooms since. And four years ago, I decided to transition into online teaching.

 

I mean, why gather 20 people in a physical classroom if we can reach thousands of people online?

 

Online teaching is the future of education.

 

And that’s why I developed the Machine Learning Advantage.

I have learned so much from your courses and webinars, looking forward to more great content. Keep up the amazing work!
