Engineer and IT Professional Recommend Streaming Media 101

Happy to share two new five-star reviews for Streaming Media 101, the only online training course available for onboarding new streaming media professionals, whether coming from the IT discipline or via engineering.

Engineer Chris Joyce commented,

As an engineer, I wasn’t sure what to expect and didn’t want to pay for some fluffy sales-type material. Jan’s course didn’t disappoint as he delves right in with hands-on tutorials and covers a broad spectrum of streaming workflows and platforms. I highly recommend his course from the executive to the engineer and everyone in between.

Those bringing an IT professional skillset to streaming will find Nikolajs Varlamovs’ review particularly relevant.

Enormous source of up-to-date streaming knowledge with some good practical tasks of encoding and image quality evaluation. This course is suitable for IT professionals looking into building fundamental knowledge of streaming technologies as well as get some deeper knowledge on some topics. Highly recommended!

I’m grateful that both learners found the course worthwhile and took the time to write about it.

For those not familiar with Streaming Media 101, here’s the elevator pitch.

This 9-hour video course teaches the technical fundamentals and skills necessary to produce and distribute streaming media.
