RealWorldUX basics is a fantastic course to get started in the world of UX design. As I went through the course content, everything was very easy to understand and very well explained. The course assumes the user doesn't need to have pre-requisite knowledge. It truly is a proper "bootcamp" course that is executed very well. 

The UX Resource Map is something that will remain handy long after the course is completed. A truly valuable tool that can also be used to help create awareness around UX with its amazing listing of various relevant resources!

RealWorldUX basics: The practical knowledge imparted through this course is exactly what newcomers into the field of UX need. There is immense focus on the methods and techniques of UX design in academics and other avenues to gain UX education. And while they equip a fresh UX designer with tactical skills, they largely miss the realities and nuances of the day-to-day life as a UX designer. True UX impact requires as much collaboration and understanding with your PM and engineering counterparts as it does core skills. This course focuses on the complete package in an interesting, easy-to-follow manner. Ryu is a first-class designer and he has incorporated every tip and trick he has learnt over his marvelous career into this course. Highly recommended!

UX Resource Map: Honestly, I get this question at least once a month: "I am interested in becoming a UX designer. Where do I start?" This Resource Map would be the place I would point those looking for help to. This alone is hours worth of research compiled beautifully and comprehensively. Ryu understands exactly what questions someone starting their journey would think about and he has all the answers in there!
