[MP]aternity Learning Pack

Special support for mothers and fathers looking after their little ones on [mp]aternity leave

[MP]aternity Learning Pack

Programming is like surfing. Each new technology another wave. What if we take a break from programming? How do we get back in the game? Will we destroy our programming career forever?

Mothers and fathers take time off to bond with and raise their child. Benefits vary by country and employer. For example, in Estonia, a company guarantees a mother's job for up to 3 years. Three years! Wonderful for parent and child, but technology has moved on. Other countries are less accommodating. In my birth country South Africa, women get 4 months unpaid leave. They may claim unemployment insurance. Their employer is not obliged to pay anything. In the USA it is even harsher. 12 weeks unpaid leave from their work and no unemployment insurance. It is tough.

To help, we are giving away one hundred [MP]aternity Learning Packs until the end of 2019. Over 115 hours of premium Java self-study courses. Given for FREE to those who qualify. Purchased individually, these courses amount to $3999.

Here is how the [MP]aternity Learning Pack works:

  • Eligible candidates get full access to all the courses shown above, for FREE.
  • To be eligible, they need to currently be on parenting leave and to be able to prove it. Typically we will ask for a letter from their employer. It can be maternity or paternity leave, hence we call the program [MP]aternity Learning Pack.
  • The parenting leave can be paid or unpaid. In some cases we might consider awarding it if the parent has resigned from work to care for their young, for example if in their country there is no provision for [mp]aternity leave.
  • This [MP]aternity Learning Pack is to specifically help parents who have had their career impacted by their parenting. We thus require that the [mp]aternity leave is at least 6 months. For shorter leave we might consider it at our discretion depending on the individual circumstances.
  • All our courses are for advanced Java programmers. They thus need to pass a simple interview to prove their competency in basic Java.
  • The [MP]aternity Learning Pack is not transferrable and is only for the person who is currently on parenting leave.
  • All our courses have lifetime access, so there is no time limit by when they must complete the material. We do recommend studying at least one or two hours a day, as time permits.
  • Some of the courses have exercises and we do issue completion certificates for the Extreme Java and Design Patterns Courses. This is all included in this [MP]aternity Learning Pack.
  • We would like to award 100 [MP]aternity Learning Packs by the end of 2019, with a maximum of 5 awarded per company.
  • This program is available to any programmers living in any country subscribed to The Java Specialists' Newsletter . As of writing, that is 149 countries.
  • This program is offered until the end of 2019.
  • We reserve the right to change these rules without prior notice.

Please fill in the contact form on [MP]aternity Learning Pack, and we will try to respond within a few days.

Happy parenting!

Heinz and Helene Kabutz

P.S. Please spread the word about this program as widely as possible, so that it can reach all those mothers and fathers of young kids who are currently on parenting leave.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have access to a fully paid course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. Furthermore, if we move to another platform, we will offer you a free transfer of your account for all the courses that you have purchased.
What is the difference between a subscription, paying in installments and an outright purchase?
With a subscription, you never own the rights to the material. If your card is declined or you cancel your subscription, you lose access to the course. The money you have paid so far is lost. Paying in installments is a bit better. You pay for 5 or 10 months and then once you have completed your installments you have lifetime access to the course. The safest is an outright purchase, where you pay the entire course in one amount. There is no risk of losing access.
Can I pay via PayPal?
Yes, you can for outright purchases, but not for recurring payments such as paying by installments or subscriptions.
Can I get an EU VAT Invoice?
Absolutely. First off, be sure to enter the VAT number in the appropriate field during the payment process. Then contact us for an EU VAT Invoice. Please tell us the receipt number for which you need the invoice.
May I share my login details with my colleagues?
Unfortunately not. The terms of usage are for a single license. Teachable tracks your progress through the curriculum, so you won't know how much you have watched. We offer a 30% discount on 50 licenses or more by one company. Please contact us for bulk licensing.
May we use the course for running in-house courses?
You may, as long as each of the students in the class has a valid license for that course. For example, a lot of companies run lunch time Design Patterns study groups using our material. This is an effective way to learn. Please contact us for bulk licensing.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund and deregister you from the course.
When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. We do recommend putting time aside and setting goals to complete the course.
Can I watch the course offline during my commute?
Teachable have an iOS app that lets you watch offline. Android is not supported unfortunately.

This course is closed for enrollment.
