Hi there !

I am Siddharth, creator of Primer, a conversational learning medium designed to help you learn better.

Books have been around for a long time because they provide value that no other medium can provide. We have rethought how books ought to work in the 21st century and created books that talk. Books that you will complete.

Learning on your own is difficult. Think of Primer as your learning companion to help you learn subjects that were previously only possible by enrolling into an university.

You don't have to take my words for it. Go for a test-drive with our newly released conversational Python-1 Primer course.

Fervently Anticipated Questions

  1. Will I be conferrred with an actual degree after completing all 46 course?
  2. Unfortunately no. The term degree is used as a collection of courses only. We are not accredited to confer degrees.
  3. Will completing Primer CS Degree help me get a job?
  4. Someone once said to me that people who are capable of doing difficult things will be never go unemployed for a long time. Our hope in creating Primer is to enable you to do "difficult things". And our wish is that being able to do difficult things takes you to interesting places.
  5. So, will I be able to learn computer science within a year?
  6. Well, its true that we are trying to release 46 courses on Computer Science in a year. However, that doesn't mean you will be able to finish all of them and understand completely. You have to think of courses on Primer (that you finish) as unfinished projects, something that you revisit again and again to really complete them. Primer Platform is designed to help you learn on your own and it's takes time to learn on your own. There are no particular advantages in hurrying.
  7. Are Primer courses equivalent to books?
  8. Primer Courses are primers rather than actual books on a subject. Books tends to be extensive about the subject while primers are brief and deep just enough for learners interest.
  9. Are there refunds on Pre-orders?
  10. Unfortunately no.
  11. Best way to contact?
  12. Mail at mail[at]primerlabs.io
