Essential 42 Full Bundle


The Essential 42 Live Classes are designed to work together to give you a broad understanding of C++ programming starting from the absolute beginning. That means you get the most benefit from them when you register and attend them together and in the order scheduled.

To encourage you to take all of the classes, you can buy them together as bundles. This full bundle is a huge $300 savings off the total individual prices.

This bundle has all at the Essential 42 Live Classes. And any future class that gets added to the set of Essential 42 Live Classes will be yours automatically with the purchases of this bundle.

Grab your full bundle now so you don’t miss out on any of the classes.

Essential 42 Weekly Bundles

From $100 

When you purchase a weekly bundle, then you get all the classes in that week. And if there are ever classes that get added to the week in the future, then you get them too.

The weekly bundles also save you money off the cost of buying all the classes individually and they let you spread out the payments so it’s easier to afford. All the weekly bundles added together save you $200 off the cost of all the individual Essential 42 Live Classes.

Start with the first week now and move on to the next weeks when you want.

Essential 42 Live Classes


You can choose which live classes to join. Each class has a specific topic so you’ll know exactly what you’ll learn and how to use it. Some topics are too long for a single hour-long class and are divided into parts. Each part is clearly described and counts as a class when registering.

When you sign up for a class or a part of a class, then you’ve purchased it and can attend that same class or part anytime it’s offered. Think of it like a ticket that you can use to get in as many times as you want.

Check out the Essential 42 Bundles to save $200 to $300 off the individual classes. Or if you prefer a subscription instead of purchasing the classes, check out the Patron plans below.


Game Development Sessions


Instead of a fixed topic, these sessions are more like a workshop. You can join at any time and watch and participate as we work together on a large game project.

The game development sessions let you help build a game. You might be working on collision detection in one session and path finding in another session. A game could take months or years to complete.

If you can’t attend a session for any reason after registering, you can choose an alternate session to attend instead. Just let us know and you can choose another date. You can even let us know after the session in case you forgot or got too busy at the last moment.

Podcast Episodes


You get 292 free podcast episodes to choose from. You can listen here on the website, or download the audio files and copy them to your MP3 player. More episodes will be added later.

Or, you can subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, or just about any podcast directory and with just about any podcast player application on your phone or tablet.

There’s something here for everybody. The episodes are short and easy to listen to. Check out the episodes about Design Patterns! There’s one episode for each pattern. And probably a few patterns you might not’ve heard about before.
