Feel free to jump to whatever question you want answered the most.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
Why use 1HJ as an abbreviation of the course name?
- We created the acronym by taking the first letter of every word (which was very ingenious and innovative, we know)
- We’re lazy and 1HJ is simpler and easier for reviewing purposes
The full course name is 17 characters long, including blanks, while 1HJ is 3 characters long.
You do the math.
Okay, we’ll do the math. We’re saving 14 characters every time we use 1HJ.
So, just a heads up that we’ll be using this abbreviation sometimes, so you’re not left scratching your head and wondering what the heck we’re talking about whenever we refer to 1HJ throughout the remainder of this review.
To determine whether John Bura’s Udemy course is a good fit for you or not, ask yourself the following questions down below.
The more you answer “yes” to each question, the more likely it is that you’ll like this course.
Can you understand what John Bura’s course is about in 30 seconds or less?
This combo of title and subtitle should be enough to communicate the purpose of the training if John Bura is a good, clear communicator (which, of course, you want in a teacher).
In our opinion, if you still don’t know what 1HJ is about after looking at these two things, then this is a red flag, and you might be better off not taking this class.
Among other things, it means John Bura hasn’t clearly and accurately conveyed what the course is about and might not be the best teacher for you.
So take just a few seconds to read the opening lines down below and see what you think of them.
Opening lines of John Bura’s official description of 1HJ
(Read more about this course on the official course page.)
Does 1HJ pass the 30 Seconds Test?
If so, John Bura has done a good job and can be considered more trustworthy and a good communicator, which are important qualities for any teacher.
And, if not, maybe you’re better off looking at other Development classes that are more clearly defined and more tailored to your specific interests.
Now that you’ve done the 30 Second Test with 1HJ above, what is your gut reaction to this Development course with only the basic information of its title, subtitle, and the first few opening lines of its official course summary?
Did John Bura do a good job conveying its subject matter, and did it immediately get your attention and appeal to you?
If so, John Bura’s online course is certainly worth considering some more.
But if not, perhaps it’s in your best interest to consider some other Development courses instead, because clear communication and being able to hook and maintain your interest are two very important qualities for your online learning success.
Does John Bura sound like a course instructor you’d like to learn from?
You’ve already learned how to use The 30 Second Test to make a quick evaluation of whether the 1HJ course is worth taking.
We have a similar 15 Second Bio Test where you read only the first few lines of an instructor’s background — in this case, John Bura’s background — and then you make a quick, snap judgment as to whether you think the instructor would be ideal for you.
There is no right or wrong answer. It’s just about going with your gut instinct. What might appeal to one potential student might alienate another, and vice versa.
(FYI, all Udemy instructors, including John Bura, have a Udemy profile on their course page, so you can easily check for a bio and background on the Udemy website that way. We’re only including the first few lines of the bio down below for The 15 Second Bio Test).
Opening lines from John Bura’s Udemy bio
John Bura is one of the 10 highest grossing Udemy instructors. Recently the top 10 instructors have sold over 10 million dollars of courses collectively. John Bura has been programming games since 1997 and teaching since 2002. John is the owner of the game development studio Mammoth Interactive. This company produces XBOX 360, iPhone, iPad, android, HTML 5, ad-games and more. Mammoth Interactive recently sold a game to Nickelodeon!

To this day John has 40 commercial games that he has contributed to. Several of the games he has produced have risen to the top 10 in the Apple’s app store. In his spare time John likes to play ultimate Frisbee, cycle and work out.

What did you think about John Bura after reading just the first few lines of the bio above?
After reading just the first few lines about John Bura, did it make you more or less interested in taking the 1HJ course?
Finally, overall, did you feel like you’d receive the proper training from the instructor of this Development course?
As always, we encourage you to listen to your gut instinct, which is different for every student.
Are the 1HJ lessons clear, specific, and organized well?
So it makes no sense whatsoever for us to list out all the modules and lessons in the 1HJ course here, because you can just as easily go to the Udemy course page and get all the up to date course structure as of right now.
We do, however, have some tips about reviewing John Bura’s course structure, so that you can get a better sense of whether this program is worth your time or not.
If the section names and lessons are clear, specific, and relevant, then it’s a good sign that 1HJ is potentially a good, useful course for you, and you can have more confidence in John Bura’s teaching abilities and lesson planning.
On the other hand, if the module names are confusing, vague, or irrelevant, then this is a red flag, which might indicate that the program is worth skipping.
Have you taken some free lessons from John Bura that you enjoyed?
Have you already learned something from John Bura that you valued or enjoyed?
But if you weren’t able to get any 1HJ lessons for free, have you perhaps watched a YouTube video by John Bura, or perhaps come across this instructor’s thoughts on Quora, Facebook, LinkedIn, Github, Reddit, or some other platform?
Or have you perhaps even taken one of John Bura’s free courses or free webinars? (Many online teachers offer these freebies, which is a great way to get to know them and evaluate their teaching methods before buying one of their courses.)
(P.S.: We strongly encourage you to seek out some free instruction from John Bura before purchasing this course, since it’s one of the best ways to determine whether 1HJ will be helpful for you.)
On the bottom of the 1HJ page, you can read student reviews of the class.
Prior to November 24, 2020, there were 1,764 students enrolled, 800 reviews / ratings, and it was overall rated 4.4 out of 5.
Obviously, the more highly other students rate 1HJ the better, but no matter what, keep an open mind when reading the reviews, since you might still like a course a great deal that other students dislike.
After all, everyone’s got their own opinion.
We recommend that you spend only a couple minutes scanning the 1HJ reviews to get an overall sense of them. You don’t have to read each one!
Is John Bura responsive to student questions in the 1HJ training?
You can see what other students have to say about this in their 1HJ reviews.
But, our simple all time favorite way of gauging an instructor’s responsiveness is to simply email the instructor and see if or how they respond.
In this case, Udemy has a messaging system for students / anyone who has an account, and you can send John Bura a message through this system quite easily, even if you haven’t bought 1HJ yet.
For example, you could say, “Hi, and I came across 1HJ while looking at Development courses on Udemy. If I enroll in your training, would you mind if I asked you any questions along the way?”
If you use this approach, the response (or lack of response) from the professor will tell you everything.
Obviously, the quicker the response the better!
Yes, you will be able to interact with the students and the teacher, John Bura, online, but it’s a different kind of experience than what you’d get if you were interacting with them in person.
This is not a big deal to most people, but it might be something for you to consider if you feel like you do better taking classes in person rather than learning online.
Do the pros / benefits of 1HJ make it worth your time?
- The purpose of 1HJ can be clearly grasped and understood, and its lesson structure is clear, specific, and well organized
- John Bura is well qualified to teach this subject matter, has good teaching abilities, and is responsive to student questions
- Other 1HJ students have great things to say about the program
Other benefits include:
- You get to go through 1HJ at your own pace
- You join a community of 1,764 other students taking the course
- You get lifetime access to the training
- All updates to the training are free
- You have a 30 day money back guarantee
Even if there are some things that you don’t like about the program, so what?
The question is simply this: do you think that 1HJ would be worth your time, even if there are some things that could be better about it?
Can you comfortably afford 1HJ?
This is an important question to answer, because even if you think 1HJ sounds like the greatest online class in the world, it’s still not worth taking if you can’t comfortably afford it!
Before November 24, 2020, the price was $12.99 before any Udemy discount, and you were able to pay with a credit card.
Keep in mind that this is a Udemy online course, and there’s a great chance that you can get a solid discount on 1HJ with Udemy coupons / promo codes, especially with the strategies we provide for helping you find the best, most popular coupons available.
We’ll cover that in greater detail in the next section, because at the end of the day, its important that you can learn whatever you want to learn without getting into a lot of credit card debt.
It will instantly give you the best coupon code we could find for John Bura’s online training.
We don’t believe there’s a bigger discount than the one we provided, but if for some reason you’d like to try find one, you can use the methods below to hunt for the best 1HJ course coupons and promo codes you can find.
FYI, the methods below will help you not just with getting 1HJ for a better price, but also with any other John Bura Udemy course that you’d like to get for cheaper.
How can Google help you get a 1HJ discount?
To use this method, do a Google search for the 1HJ training, but in your search query, be sure to add words like coupon code, promo code, deal, sale, discount, and Udemy.
Similarly, you can use the same combination of search terms with John Bura’s name and see what happens.
For example, you might do a Google search for “John Bura Udemy coupons” or “John Bura course coupon codes” and see if that helps you.
However, in general, it’s far more powerful to do a search for deals and coupon codes with the actual training’s name, than with the instructor’s name.
How can a Udemy sale get you 1HJ for cheaper?
Every once in while, Udemy will do a sitewide sale where they offer all (or almost all) their courses at a discounted price. For example, one of the best sales is where every course is only $10 or $9.99.
So, if you’re interested in saving as much money as possible, you could wait and see if you can get 1HJ for this cheaper Udemy sale price one day.
The problem is that these sales only occur sporadically, so you might be waiting for a while. Also, if John Bura decides not to participate in the site wide sale, then you won’t get a discount on 1HJ, even though you could get a great discount on almost any other class at Udemy!
To understand this, think of there as being two different coupon categories for the 1HJ course. Category one is an official Udemy coupon (which instructors can opt out of), while category two is a coupon offered directly by the instructor.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what kind of a coupon tag you’re dealing with (for example, “officially from Udemy” or “officially from the instructor”), as long as long as as you’re dealing with active coupons that get you a better price.
How can you get a 1HJ discount from John Bura?
To do this, you can use either the direct approach or an indirect approach to try to get your discount.
With the direct approach, the big idea is to simply get John Bura’s contact info in some way or another (whether it’s email, or Twitter, or whatever else).
On the other hand, with the indirect approach, you join John Bura’s mailing list, if you can find it, and then you hope that at some time 1HJ will be promoted to you at a discount.
By far, the more powerful approach is the direct approach, because it tends to get results faster. But you can experiment with the indirect approach and see if it works for you.
Can you get 1HJ for free?
Of course, the best possible price for the 1HJ training is free! As in, you pay no money whatsoever.
And guess what? Sometimes Udemy instructors provide coupon codes that enable students to take their courses for free. So, perhaps it’s possible that John Bura has done this.
Basically, if you’re trying to get this program for free, you will want to search for the course’s name along with other words like free coupon, or 100 off coupon.
But keep this in mind: often, Udemy teachers will offer a free coupon for their course when it first opens to get some publicity and reviews. And then, after a few days, they’ll make the coupon expired.
So even John Bura has offered free coupons for 1HJ in the past, the odds are likely they will all be currently expired. This is a common pattern that we have found.
What about a 1HJ free download?
It’s important to understand that there’s a difference between getting full access to the 1HJ training for free legally with a free coupon code vs. finding a way to download 1HJ illegally.
And if that doesn’t get you the results you want, you can add the word “free” to your search.
However, even if you get some results from these searches, we do not recommend that you take this course of action.
First of all, there are some shady sites out there that could be trying to infect your computer.
Second, John Bura created this course and deserves monetary compensation for it.
And third, if you go the free download route, you’ll be missing out on a lot of value, because you won’t be able to ask the instructor questions or interact with the other 1,764 students enrolled in the program.
Let’s say that you used our tips above, and you were able to buy the 1HJ training at a fantastic discounted price. So at this point, you’re super excited.
Then, you actually dive into John Bura’s course, and you discover that it just isn’t for you for whatever reason.
And now you’re super bummed, because you feel like it wasn’t money well spent.
Well, guess what?
Udemy offers a rock solid 30 day money back guarantee on all their courses, so you can get a refund on 1HJ no matter what. And this means there is absolutely no risk.
Indeed, even if you left a super negative, critical review on the 1HJ training, and then asked for your money back, you’d get a refund. For better or worse, there’s nothing John Bura could do about it, since it is simply Udemy policy.
To sum it up: yes, you can get a full refund, so at the end of the day, don’t worry about the possibility of purchasing 1HJ and not liking it, since you can always get your money back.
During this 1HJ review, you’ve learned about some of the unusual ways we like to evaluate courses, such as with The 30 Second Test and The 15 Second Bio Test.
So our overall review process is perhaps a little unusual and different from other reviews out there. Keep this in mind when you consider the overall rating / score that we have given this course.
Anyway, after taking a look at the 1HJ training, the instructor, John Bura, and reading what other students have said about this program, we give it an overall rating of 4.9 out of 5.
Ultimately, though, what matters most is what you would rate it based on the same criteria.
