So we will go step-by-step to your goals, which means you will start learning some basics of Java, then we will continue with the first Discord Bot, after this we will start with more advanced features available in the Discord Bot API (JDA) until we reached the point where we will talk about databases, files, advanced systems & much more. So in general as you can see this course really covers & features everything you need & search for.

Upon purchasing this course from previous reviews, I was proudly able to learn to create a discord bot utilizing JDA but I have a few points that I would like to raise. 1) This course does not take you step by step from beginner to expert as most of the learning process relies on yourself to research things outside the course. The instructors' discord support is also inactive and barely attempts to help you at all. 2) This course has not been updated for a while even though there are many things that are not included in this course ranging from Modals to understanding a Listener Manager system and so on. 3) A lot of the video explanation seems a bit rushed leaving holes and not explained things that should be addressed for a "beginner java coder" Fortunately, I would say if you put your effort to learning it along with researching other examples and how other users utilises JDA you will eventually figure out how to design a working bot to fulfill your desires but even then, the lack of support that u cannot get tends to sway this course off its attraction in my opinion. I would say a lot of improvements could take place to make this course more attractive, engaging and professional for all users.

Great course overall, it really helped me with making my own discord bot. I think the course could've been longer and go a little deeper in some aspects like the Music Bot. But just for the enourmous amount of content about JDA it's worth it. Great course! I will comeback in the future if updated because it's amazing. PD: The link to the server is not working atm.

Great course. I knew some Java beforehand but new nothing about Discord Bots and the discord api. Cut to a few weeks later and I have a custom bot remotely hosted that meets the functionality I needed and that I couldn't find in the freely available bots. This isn't just a case of copy and pasting code either, the lessons give great examples but also provide starting points and structures for when you need to go off and do your own thing, with the confidence to experiment gained from a solid foundation. My only complaint would be that in some places a zoom-in on the screen would have really helped.

Pascal, a very interesting course on the bot, but there is not enough information, I started upgrading the bot to the musical side and there is not enough explanation of how to make skip command, stop command and so on with the server command interface. I understand that I have to track the Music controller, but how do I write it correctly? Won't you supplement your course on this? It would be interesting to see about Pause command, Volume command and so on. Thanks again for the course!

So far so good, just getting started. I hope I can find the code somewhere so I don't have to type it all in.

It is a good course which comes to the point, but so far I find it very rushed and seems like the whole course is just made in a rush. On many parts it's badly explained and things just happens really fast, and without proper explaining of what different things do, and other things.

Great course so far, but I think that the teacher could talk about more details, but still a very good course so far

Presentation style is very rushed and I find this quite distracting. Pascal speaks very rapidly, which can be adjusted for my playing the videos at reduced speed, but there is a lot of clicking the mouse through menus rapidly which I find somewhat difficult to follow. Interested to see how the course progresses as the topic is interesting but might brush up on Java and InttelliJ skills elsewhere before returning for Discord Bot specific sections.

Very helpful for me leading to quick results. I was realy able to create my own discord bots in a fast and efficient way. Also I can confirm that the trainer is very knowledged. This was exactly what I was looking for.
