Who is the Academy for?

  • Beginners, intermediates, or experts. No matter your level of expertise, you’ll find content and discussions relevant to your skills and needs.
  • BUT you have to be serious about learning and putting the knowledge into practice. This is not an overnight “get-quick-results” scheme. It’s an investment that will also take effort on your part in order to succeed and get the results you really want.
  • You’re an independent consultant focused on building IoT solutions for your customers.
  • You want to make sure you and your team are looking sharp in front of your clients, and have the confidence and knowledge needed to make the right decisions when it comes to designing a Bluetooth-connected system.
  • You are part of a team focused on building products that utilize Bluetooth Low Energy technology.
  • You want to make sure you’re aware of all the latest updates and newest features introduced in the latest Bluetooth specification versions.
  • You value community and you want to connect with other developers, engineers, testers, and experts working in the Bluetooth space.

This academy is NOT for you if...

  • You are a complete beginner who has never written a single line of code.
  • You are NOT serious about putting in the effort to take the knowledge you’ll learn from the courses and apply it to your project.
  • You are simply exploring Bluetooth Low Energy technology and just wanting to learn about it at a high level. In that case, I recommend you first read through my 100% FREE “Intro to Bluetooth Low Energy” book!

Who is behind the Academy? and why should you even care?

I’m Mohammad Afaneh, a Bluetooth Developer and the Founder of Novel Bits and the Bluetooth Developer Academy.

I’ve been on your journey before…

I’ve gone from a newbie to an expert in BLE development. Having worked with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) since 2014, I’ve experienced all the stages that you go through from being a beginner all the way up to becoming an expert in the field.

You may ask, “what makes you qualified as a Bluetooth LE Expert, Mohammad”??

  • I’ve self-published a top-rated book on the topic: Intro to Bluetooth Low Energy, which has helped thousands of developers get started with learning BLE and developing Bluetooth-connected products more efficiently.
  • I’ve created an educational YouTube video series about Bluetooth Low Energy technology that’s been watched and referenced by thousands of developers.
  • I’ve consulted for the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) for two and half years as the Developer Relations Manager for the Americas region.
  • I’ve consulted for tens of startups and Fortune 500 companies on the design, architecture, and marketing of Bluetooth Low Energy products.

I’ve felt the pain of the often enormous learning curve associated with developing Bluetooth Low Energy products!

I’ve learned the hard way, wasting days and weeks getting up to speed while struggling with poor or non-existent resources. 

That’s why I created the Bluetooth Developer Academyso you don’t have to learn the hard way, and can level up in no time instead.

I’m a big believer in both learning by doing and by learning from others’ experiences. That’s why I’ve included both in-depth video courses and access to a private community of Bluetooth experts for you to interact with and learn from.

I’d love for you to check out the Academy and let me know what you think. My number one priority is to get you up to speed with Bluetooth Low Energy’s best practices and keep you up-to-date on the latest in Bluetooth technology. All, so you’re equipped to tackle your projects confidently and quickly… and ship on time.

Looking for corporate membership offerings?

Don’t forget: it’s completely risk free!

I’ve packed a lot into the Bluetooth Developer Academy because not only do I want you to accelerate the development of your BLE product, but I want to guarantee that you don’t fail.

And to make it a no-brainer deal for you I’m giving you a 30-day 100% money-back guarantee with your registration of becoming a member.

That’s right: Sign up as a member, go through all the courses, follow the steps, put in the work, get help from the Academy Experts, and if you don’t love it in the first 30 days of your registration, send me an email and I’ll refund you immediately. No questions asked, no hard feelings.

If the Bluetooth Developer Academy doesn’t work for you, I’d much prefer for you to take your money and invest it where you will be happier and get results. I just want you to succeed in getting your (or your client’s) BLE product to market in the fastest time possible!
