My name is Gustavo Pezzi, and I'm a university lecturer in London, UK.
I teach fundamentals of computer science, programming, and mathematics. My academic path includes institutions such as Pittsburg State University, City University of London, and University of Oxford.
I also have some useful scars from 15+ years of industry experience with 3D systems & programming.
But after all is said and done, I'm just a guy who absolutely loves to teach... and I'm sure it shows.
I created Pikuma to teach the courses I wish existed when I was starting out. It's a place for those who enjoy understanding the low-level details of how things work. Here, everything is taught from first principles!
Think of each one of my courses as a comprehensive book on a particular topic. But more than just a book, here we get to sit together, understand every formula, savour every line of code, and develop a project to really consolidate your knowledge on that topic.
One of my students wrote that "the course felt like going on a great short vacation with an excellent guide." I want Pikuma to be just that; going on a fun vacation to a quiet cabin in the woods with a nerd friend.
Pikuma is not about tech career, finding a job, or the latest software hype. Pikuma is about understanding the fundamentals and opening black boxes.
I noticed that the majority of my students are usually hobbyists or professional programmers already, but beginners are always encouraged to join and evolve at their own pace.
I want to make low-level programming and math fun, non-intimidating, and accessible to everyone. This is a light-hearted and welcoming platform with no place for ego!
Like my students say, "Pikuma is no fast-food course." You'll learn the low-level details of why and how things work. Each course comes with a set of lectures, videos, quizzes, exercises, and structured activities to consolidate your knowledge on the topics.
I don't play games! I don't teach hype buzzword tech or make false coding bootcamp promises. I try to focus on concepts that are timeless and that will hold true long after the technology is replaced. Also, there are no sales gimmick here, such as running promotions or offering discount codes.
You'll receive a weekly progress reminder to keep you on track and motivate you to finish your course. Let’s face it, how many of us purchase courses and never finish them? Unlike other platforms, I want you to complete the course and get full value from it.
