Nanodegrees for Jon to reach for Smart Robotics

Organized by: Jonathan Wong

Jonathan's Photo


Jon needs a job to pay for the apartment he bought for his penniless father (found without roof, with prior domestic violence records).

To get a job, Jon needs to finish his education faster (via Nanodegrees at Udacity). Acing his Bachelor Degree course so far did not land Jon a job (as an IT expert). Jon intends to complete every Nanodegree on Udacity to certify his existing skills.

How did Jon not have a Bachelor Degree? 2 prior strikes (NUS, NTU) due to severe familial and financial difficulties. A 3rd strike imminent, if Jon cannot get a job that can pay for the apartment.

How Jon can help you? Jon will work for you to create open-source projects (on GitHub) that will be useful to the majority of the donors (that includes you).

How you can help Jon? Either fund his Nanodegrees, or help him get a job! (Jon needs extremely challenging jobs that will stress the screws out of his brains, which might cure his propensity for boredom with tasks he has mastered.)

Jon will be posting detailed and exciting blogs about his progress in his Nanodegrees. The blogs will be git-tracked on GitHub (, and will be built using Jekyll (

The Nanodegrees Jon intends to complete are:

  • Front-End Web Developer
  • Senior Web Developer
  • Full Stack Web Developer
  • Machine Learning Engineer
  • Data Analyst
  • Android Developer
  • iOS Developer

(All programs that are backed by job guarantees ---

Jon is confident of completing each Nanodegree within 2 months, which puts all the above Nanodegrees within reach at around 1.5 years, really conservatively speaking. That is much faster than the 3-4 years Jon needs to complete his (part-time) Bachelor Degree. The total cost will thus be around US$5400.

Help! Make Jon a useful individual who is profitable for society!
