1. What is Pikuma?

Pikuma is an education platform focused on the fundamental concepts of computer science, programming, and mathematics. All of our content is structured to be ad-free and distraction-free.


2. Why the rubber duck?

Good explanations are a powerful tool to understand the world. "Rubber duck debugging" is a popular method of debugging code, where the programmer explains the code to the duck, line-by-line, and in the process of breaking down the problem it eventually figures out how to solve it. I strongly believe in the power of understanding and being able to explain line-by-line what we are doing. It is the heart of my teaching methodology and delivery format.


3. Where are you located?

London, United Kingdom.


4. Why are your courses so cheap for so much content?

I believe in making education affordable and accessible. Also, I rely on your good words to cover the costs to keep the platform running, ad free, and to host content. So if you really enjoyed the courses and only if you believe this is good value, all I ask is that you spread the word around and show us some love. You are the patron of this platform!


5. Why are your courses different from all the others out there?

As my students usually say... "This is no fast-food course!"

I agree with them. Pikuma is better, more thorough, accessible, affordable, and the courses are delivered by a university lecturer with the right dose of industry scars.

We don't simply teach hype or buzzword technology. We teach concepts that are timeless and that will hold true long after the technology is replaced. If you are still not convinced by the testimonials, check it out yourself.


6. I am having trouble enrolling on a course. What sould I do?

Just send me a quick email and I will sort out the glitch immediately. Oh, and we would also appreciate the heads up.

No.


8. Would you keep harassing me with emails if I subscribe?

Absolutely not. You will never be bombarded with newsletters and "offers." And remember that you have the option to unsubscribe at any time.


9. What if I don't like the course?

You get your money back. I offer a 14-day money back guarantee. Just send me a message along with your full name and order number and I will process your refund immediately.


10. What if I don't understand parts of the course?

Every student has access to the discussion board. There you'll be able to discuss, ask questions, and also engage with other students by answering their questions. No question is too small. This is what we do!


11. Would I have the course available to me for life?

Yes. Once you enroll, the content will be available to you on demand.


12. What happens when I purchase a course?

You will receive an email confirmation of your order and you will then be able to start your course instantly.


13. Can I download the course?

There are downloadable resources, such as source code, articles, and exercises. But the lectures are only accessible online through the platform, which is available 24-7 via desktop or mobile.
