JUCE course


#1

Is there anything out there for a noob like me? I’m comfortable with c++ and JUCE seems fairly intuitive, however I’d like to make an immersive jump to get my feet wet in JUCE. I really like Qt but it seems JUCE is better at everything audio/MIDI/plugin oriented that I want to do on the Mac and PC. In all of my searches I’ve come up with nothing … no books, no courses, only an outdated pdf tutorial. Seems that JUCE needs an intensive seminar type course like that offered by Aaron Hillegass for Mac OS X Cocoa programming. A jumpstart of some sort.

Currently the pdf is the only study material available for juce. It will provide enough information for you to start working with juce.


#3

I agree with vishvesh.
The best way to learn juce is to analyze the juce demo code.
I love juce because is very well documented within the code, while qt has loads of examples but external documentation.

I put in proposal to run a course based in Juce at ICMC in New York - end May / start June 2010. Should hear next week if it got accepted. It would have an audio slant to it but we’d be going through the basics.

Thanks everyone! martinrobinson, please let us know if your proposal is accepted.

Always gives me a thrill to hear about people actually teaching something that I invented…

Hello,

OK, the proposal has been accepted - subject to my confirmation. Unfortunately I need to front my travel costs (UK <-> NY) + etc and recoup them assuming enough people sign up for the course. So I’m looking at the reasibility and risk involved in this…

I need to set the course fee. I’d like to gauge some opinion: what would people pay for a 2-day course?


#8

It depends on the topics you would like to cover. 2 days should be long enough to cover most of the topics.

Great! I think 500-1000 would be reasonable for 2 days depending on how much is covered.

I’d really appreciate if someone made a course on Udemy.com You’d probably get thousands of students.


#11

Are there any courses online now?


#12

Martin’s “Getting started with Juce” book is a pretty good intro course.


#13

There is also a not too old thread with links:

Maybe a sticky thread with suggested readers would be a thing…?

Book was published in 2013.

At the 2015 JUCE summit, Martin was asked about a new book. He said JUCE is advancing so fast, a web site is probably better. Martin said the examples in his book “still compiled” but he seemed surprised they do. See video @ 21:30 mins: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoinVP6wyDI

I suspect the book is obsolete by now.
