What others say
Bartosz's experience is demonstrated in the Web Security program. I was pleased to go over the first few lessons and learn the theory behind Web Security. All the concepts learned were later put into practice with his great Angular application backed by a Node.js service. Although I'm a Spring Boot developer, I was able to apply all the principles and concepts of Web Security in my applications. Also, the live sessions are essential in this program to ask and respond questions and build a great community. The program is updated regularly with new modules, I can't wait for the Firebase Security one! Keep up the great work!
Finding a complete and up to date Web security content is hard and time consuming, especially as a whole. With Web Security Academy, I found out a great opportunity to learn about security in depth both on client and server sides. The program's material isn't just a simple support to learn but provides good practices of a real world application. Bartosz is a great teacher and meetings with him and other students is part of the program, giving you the support from a whole community.
This program will give you a fresh perspective in security for the web, regardless if you've been in dev for years or are a new programmer. Bartosz builds lessons from upcoming web security standards making the curriculum up-to-date, contrasting what others might find on a bookshelf. I guarantee you'll find value in this program.
I am very skeptical about online courses or courses in general. However, I have seen Bartosz on YouTube in some videos and decided to join the program because I was excited by the way it was structured. There were many topics I was already experienced in but I must say that I still learned a lot. Especially the Online Meetings and the knowledge exchange was a real added value and I would recommend this program to anyone. The content did not disappoint me and I learned exactly the things I needed to develop in this area. Good Job Bartosz!
I am really impressed with the quality of the materials in the Academy. The content is designed in easy to consume fashion and focuses on important aspects. Also, it is very valuable to learn together with other developers over an extended period of time. I really recommend this kind of online training.
The program is really well built. It first guides you through the ways a SPA can be vulnerable and the ways those vulnerabilities can be fixed, then it teaches you how to implement those protection mechanisms with Angular, without getting stuck on general development questions too much. It also shows the backend parts of those protection mechanisms. After completing the program I feel confident that I can protect the webapps I develop.
If you are looking for a training to take you from just a front-end developer to a full-stack Angular/Node.js, then this is it. I have been an Angular contractor for a couple of years now and still learned some valuable tips for the front-end but the back-end has been invaluable to me for understanding how to build a highly secure full-stack application. The teacher is always there to help and really does care about you achieving the best from the program. He takes time to explain concepts in excellent weekly meetings where you will meet a great bunch of developers from all around the world and bounce new ideas off each other. Far better than the other Angular security courses I have taken in the past.
WebSecurity Academy is a great place to learn new skills or increase your current. The instructor is very kind and has a goal that you understand all the content, so there's a Community (Slack) that you'll be a part of so you can ask questions (or help answer them), talk personally with the instructor, and get to know the other students. One thing I really like about this program is that it's paced over a certain amount of time. You won't be overwhelmed with On-Demand videos, although later you'll have on-demand access forever, which also nice! Overall, I give this 5 out of 5 stars!
Bartosz brings in-depth knowledge and experience in Angular enterprise development. He gives tremendous value to the Angular community.
Bartosz's Angular training was probably the best I've attended so far. He always tried to explain everything in the way when both novice and experienced developer could understand it, but at the same time he spent not too much time on simple things - probably that balance was the most important personally for me.
Bartosz is a able to conduct trainings with a great professionalism. I've attended his training on Angular and found it very useful, as Bartosz in a limited time frame provided both theoretical knowledge and practical exercises and eventually helped me to delve into front end web development.
Recently I've participated in a training conducted by Bartek. I would say he is a very talented trainer with individual approach to every student.
I've attended Bartosz's training for Angular 2 and want to say, that it is one of the best trainings I've visited. Bartosz kept us all the time focused on tha task and everybody was involved in the process. Four days past like a minute and I had a feeling, that I want to stay and continue learning. And at the same time we were able to cover a lot of topics and Bartosz gave us a direction for further learning.
I had a true pleasure to attend a training led by Bartosz. Right away I was positively surprised with the level and attitude. Bartosz not only knows by heart the stuff he teaches, but really likes what he does. He was keen to answer all questions and also helped with practical excercies. He had everything under control. The ratio between theory and practical tasks was just right.
The materials are designed to give you 10x more value than you expect. But, if for whatever reason you will not be satified, then you can write an email within 14 days since your purchase to bartosz[at]dev-academy.com and I will give you money back.
My goal is to help you and give as much value as possible.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long do I have my membership in the program?
You receive a life-time membership in the program. It also means that if the program is extended with the new modules in the future, you will have the access to it, without any additional costs.
Do you provide any guarantee?
Yes, I do. Academy offers 14 days money-back guarantee. If you don't find the program fitting your needs after 14 days of your purchase, you can ask for the refund - you just send an email to bartosz[at]websecurity-academy.com and you will receive your money back.
I don't have time to take such a comprehensive program. Is it for me?
In order to take advantage of the program you have to invest at least 1-2 hours a week. The materials are going to be concise and concrete to maximize the learning and minimize the time needed for it.
Will I receive a bill or invoice for later reimbursement by my company?
Yes, you will receive it for later reimbursement, but you need to provide VAT ID in the checkout (before the payment) to have VAT ID on the invoice.
Is it all Angular and Node specific?
No! Indeed, the main project's implementation is based on Angular and Node.js (with TypeScript), but underlying concepts are applicable to any stack (React, Vue, Java, .net, Python, etc.).
Do you add taxes to the purchase?
The payment system automatically verifies if taxes (like VAT) are applicable depending on your location and legal status. If applicable, the relevant taxes will be automatically included in your payment (without increasing the price). If you provide your VAT ID the taxes usually disappear.
