About Finxter

Welcome to Finxter, a platform designed to help you learn and improve your programming skills. We believe anyone can become a great programmer and are committed to providing the resources you need to make that happen.

Our platform is built on six pillars:

  • 💈 Pillar 1: The Finxter Email List
  • 💈 Pillar 2: The Finxter Computer Science Academy
  • 💈 Pillar 3: The Finxter App
  • 💈 Pillar 4: The Finxter Mastermind Group
  • 💈 Pillar 5: The Finxter Books
  • 💈 Pillar 6: The Finxter Freelancer Course

Pillar 1: Finxter Email Academy

Our email academy is the gateway to the Finxter blog. It provides you with practical coding tutorials, coding cheat sheets, tips, and strategies that you can use to improve your programming skills.

We believe that education should be accessible to everyone, and that’s why our email list is completely free.

This is also the recommended way to dive into the Finxter ecosystem. Feel free to join us here:

Pillar 2: Finxter Computer Science Academy

Our traditional course platform offers a comprehensive curriculum designed to teach you programming skills and projects.

Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced programmer, you’ll find courses that suit your level and interests. Our instructors are experienced developers — we call them Finxter Creators — who are passionate about teaching and helping others to succeed.

Pillar 3: Finxter App

Coding is like learning a new language. You improve by listening to and expressing yourself in the new language. A core language skill is to understand words quickly. Likewise, a core programming skill is to understand code quickly.

The Finxter app teaches you rapid code understanding. It teaches you to see beyond the code. When we are done with you, the meaning of a code snippet will unfold like words from your mother tongue. At this point, consider yourself a code master.

Becoming a code master is what we at Finxter want for you. Furthermore, we want you to achieve this with minimal effort only by committing to a simple process. We know: If you are like most of our users, you can not commit full-time to learning to code.

Fortunately, this is not needed. A small habit is much better than a great event. Learn 5 minutes every day and not a single whole weekend. True learning is a process, not an event.

To help you reach your goal on the side, we have created the Finxter loop, a daily 5-minute habit. Solve a puzzle a day and enjoy the release of endorphins into your brain when solving it. Commit to this single habit and your Python skills will expand rapidly.

Here are some benefits of the Finxter app:

  • Broad learning: >300 Python code puzzles with a rapidly growing puzzle base.
  • Visual learning: >300 selected educative videos to explain Python concepts of each puzzle.
  • Focused learning: One Python key concept per puzzle.
  • Individualized learning: Puzzles in your difficulty level.
  • Scientific learning: Finxter is based on the scientifically proven learning method practice testing.
  • Test-driven learning: Test your skill level and compare it against thousands of other Finxters.
  • Interactive learning: Finxter Community helps you grow your skills.
  • Fast learning: 5-minute Finxter loop for sustainable learning progress.
  • Provable learning: Certificates to prove your progress to employers.

Pillar 4: Finxter Mastermind Group

Have you read “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill?

According to Napoleon Hill, a mastermind group is a “coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose.” The purpose of a mastermind group is to leverage the collective intelligence, experience, and skills of a group of individuals to achieve common goals that are beyond the reach of any single person.

In Hill’s view, a mastermind group is a powerful force for success because it allows individuals to share their knowledge and experience, support one another, and hold each other accountable for their goals. By working together, members of a mastermind group can achieve much more than they could on their own, because they are able to tap into the strengths and expertise of other group members.

Hill believed that a mastermind group should be comprised of individuals who are committed to a common goal, have a positive and collaborative attitude, and possess a diversity of skills and experiences. Through regular meetings, brainstorming sessions, and other forms of collaboration, members of a mastermind group can help one another overcome challenges, generate new ideas, and ultimately achieve success.

This is exactly the idea of the Finxter Mastermind Group on Discord!

Our mastermind group is a community of like-minded individuals who are passionate about programming and are committed to improving their skills. With regular meetups and exclusive content, the mastermind group provides a supportive and collaborative environment where you can learn from others and share your knowledge.

The mastermind group is free to access for Finxter Premium Members.
