We are pleased to announce our partnership with Udemy.
We wanted to thank you for being our fan by providing you more ways to learn and hone in your awesome skills! Udemy is offering two really sweet deals, just for SF New Tech fans.Check them out!
(Please click on the links below to see each course special)
Dave McClure, Adeo Ressi, and Naval Ravikant – teaching you how to Raise Capital for your Startup. These guys are investors in Twitter, Foursquare, Mint, SlideShare (list goes on… way on), and they’ve run dozens of companies themselves (i.e. they know both sides of the table).
The problem is, you can’t learn from folks like this unless you know them. Luckily, problem solved because the guys at Udemy have put together a killer online course called “Raising Capital for Startups. The course features Dave, Adeo, Naval (and more), and this week they’re hooking us up with 60% off (making it $39… retail price $99). Grab it while it’s hot.
iPhone, iPad, iOS. It’s getting a little crazy out there with 187 million iDevices, more than 300,000 apps, and dozens making over $1,000,000 in revenue. That’s why I’m very excited to announce a deal from the guys at Udemy on their online course “Learn to Develop iPhone & iPad Apps in 4 Weeks.”
The course is taught by Bess Ho, who is quickly becoming something of a silicon valley legend given her ability to take business folks (with zero programming skills) and have them build real functional apps in less than 6 hours. She teaches at places like Hacker Dojo, but if you can’t make it to a class she’s put together an awesome version of her course online at Udemy.com. It retails at $250, but the Udemy guys are hooking it up with 60% off making it $99 for this week only. Enjoy!
BeauteCam is an iPhone app for analyzing human skin quality from photos taken with phone’s integrated camera. Using an aftermarket 27x macro lens that is attached to the service of the iPhone’s camera, BeauteCam analyzes a macro shot of the user’s skin and suggests ways to improve aesthetics and skin health.
It’s likely that BeauteCam probably employs some form of OCR (Optical Character Recognition) algorithm to search for indicators of various skin conditions. According to their description, this seems to take place serverside.

I don’t want to believe that the tech industry is inescapably bound towards another dangerous bubble. I have been able to rationalize my denial with the idea that the Silicon Valley of the ’90’s is not the Silicon Valley now. We are smarter, more calculating, and led by veterans who know how to help nurture the sustainable growth of a global market.
Then I heard that among the panel of judges at Startup Weekend in Los Angeles were Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore.
The Wall Street Journal recently published an article on how modern Silicon Valley is starting to look a lot like 1999. While the tech industry is more mature than we were 12 years ago, it’s hard to deny that tech’s rise from the recession could very well turn into another unsustainable bubble.
