Amikelive Tech is a blog for technology enthusiasts who are tinkering with latest research, advances and trends in technologies. It has been around since 2007 (11 years!) and hopefully for years to come. Currently all the contents in the blog are provided for free. However, this will change a little bit for better sustainability.
Amikelive System Architect is a course and community on the emerging technologies in the app, web, and API development. The course is designed to unleash your potential in creating a system from nothingness and bring it to the production stage; turning zero to one.
Do you want develop an authentication system including Facebook login, image upload, and chatting into your mobile app? This course will provide you sample project references that you can adapt for your use case.
Do you want to build realtime statistics, do something great with tons of data point, and visualize the data in a visually appealing style? This course will help you set up your own big data infrastructure, your very first Hadoop and Spark cluster, and assist you in creating your data pipeline, pushing your data to HBase, and building a consumer for the processed data in an elegant way.
Do you want to delve into machine learning and artificial intelligence but found it too time consuming even to set up the environment? This course will help you set up the infrastructure and development environment so that you can start punching codes and become an awesome data engineer.
Beginner or expert, this course will bring something new to you and help you bring the much sought expertise to your portfolio: the system design skill.
About the Course Author
My name is Mikael Fernandus Simalango, or simply Mike in the shorter version. I did my graduate study in computer engineering and then spent some good years working at General Electric (GE). I was there during the cloud computing nascent time and even wrote my own chapter in the Handbook of Cloud Computing. After my stint at GE, I jumped to the startup world, trying to push breakthrough technologies and innovation forward to the mass. These days I'm serving a CTO role at Team Mondrian, a South Korean startup and also founding an AI-powered travel startup.
Why This Course?
Throughout my academic and professional journey, I often found out that ideas stalled at concept or design stage and were never materialized. Oftentimes, this happened because nobody was eager or thought about having the ability to execute, to turn the ideas into real product or service. If you are building a web or mobile app, you may immediately think it's overwhelming to do everything by yourself: the frontend, backend, and design. It can be very scary to imagine the time needed to master all the required technologies. It can take years and by the time you are ready, the new technology is already emerging at the horizon.
Hence the course, it is designed to be a pragmatic approach to master the important aspects of system development so that you can start instead of waiting. It is time for you to create your own system. It is time to turn zero to one.
Let's make it happen together. Thanks for your support.
