Our core mission at Semantic Square is to build complete engineers. A complete engineer is someone who has a solid foundation in his or her craft. He or she has a deep understanding of every concept without any loose ends. Everything has been learnt well with a purpose. Moreover, these engineers have a solid understanding of design principles, patterns and best practices, which are critical for writing well-designed code - code that is beautiful and easy to maintain. With such a solid foundation in place, they are very passionate about what they can do and are also very confident and happy.
At Semantic Square, backed by several years of industry and teaching experience, we build beautiful and inspiring courses that are highly practical. Every concept that we teach is meticulously researched, tested and mostly put into practice in a real product. We code every day and carry some of that into our courses. So, we really know what we are teaching and not just relaying some stuff learnt from a book. If you are curious to know more about why we are doing this, then do read our story below. It is based on experience and everything has already been implemented successfully.
The idea of Semantic Square has taken its roots during its founder's (Dheeru Munduru) experience as a software engineer in Silicon Valley. After working for several years with many excellent engineers, Dheeru realized that sometimes the teams he worked with fell short of developing effective solutions. This led to several rounds of "code refactoring" resulting in loss of valuable time for the organization. This he realized was due to programming not being taught in the right way at most Universities & Colleges across the world. Students are mostly taught core programming language features without any emphasis on best practices or design rules required for writing well-designed code. Due to this, developers are often ill-equipped when they have to come up with good solutions for complex problems. This leads to some quick ad-hoc & incomplete learning, which often not only result in bad solutions, but also more importantly causes lot of stress on developer's part. This made Dheeru realize that a more holistic approach to teaching is needed where programming language features are taught along with best practices & design principles needed for building well-designed robust software. Semantic Square's flagship Java In-Depth Masterclass was a result of this realization. Over 100k students from over 150 countries have already benefited from these lectures. It was meticulously built over several years and was first launched on Udemy where it quickly received tremendous response from students across the world and has since remained as one of Udemy's top Java courses.
