Intro to AutoHotkey Udemy course

09 Jul 2019, 14:32

I recently completed my Intro to AutoHotkey Udemy course. :dance:

This course covers the "basics" and is meant for Noobs.

Right now the course is free. I'll probably change that at the end of July.

BTW- I purposely left-in the mistakes / errors to help people learn how to troubleshoot. While I love Lynda.com courses, I don't like how they make everything appear "perfect" thus
1) make you feel incompetent when things don't work right and
2) Leave you helpless not learning how to troubleshoot.

Anyway, I hope it helps people learn the basics. Hopefully in a month or two I'll work on some intermediate courses.

Thank you very much hasantr! In a few weeks I should have time to start the next one. Your words of encouragement will help drive me to do them! :)

I thank you. There is very little educational resource on AHK. We find many trainings piece by piece. Sample files and advice from helpful users when we ask for help. The AHK Guide is very difficult for me to understand. For the first time, thanks to this training, I feel that I started learning AHK by understanding the basics with a beautiful curriculum. A good start for novices.

I am trying to use OOP with AHK. I hope you will give us training on this. :)

Hi Joe,

Agreed with hasantr on this; it was very easy to follow and didn't drag out so it was super useful. Very keen for the next set.

I am no longer a noob when it comes to ahk, I managed to create my own rpa script for work around (3000 lines of code), however I am always looking to learn more about RPA, I started out with simple commands, then I expanded to ocr and image search, combined with if then statements and finally I was able to get a few COM commands up and running for my work, can you please provide an example of the RPA portion of the course as I don't really need to learn about the basics of ahk as much! Thanks!

The course is an "intro to AutoHotkey" thus there was nothing complex in it. I suggest you look at my site https://the-automator.com. Specifically you can learn about Web scraping, API calls, and using Excel.

I’m having trouble understanding the provided tutorial. This may be for me.. perhaps the intro may be all I need?

Let me ask you. I’m not looking to create lines and lines of code. I am looking for simple tasks... at least what seems simple.

For example.. make a simple Keyboard keystroke T rapid fire T with a delay while keeping my mouse functionally and not locking up my computer. Etc.

Is this course for me? Or a start? I’m not looking for anything complex.

Section 1: Introduction and Overview 23 min
Section 2: Setting-up AutoHotkey 11 min
Section 3: Critical Concepts 15 min
Section 4: Powerful Built-in Tools 1hr 1 min
Section 5: Basic Programming 27 min
Section 6: Functions 22 min

I went ahead and purchased the course. I am brand new to AHK and know it’s so beneficial for the use I want out of it. I’m going to hit the ground running and hopefully do some small neat things that will make certain things better for me.

@adrenalinskr Awesome! A friend and I also have a course on HotStrings. They're amazingly helpful and pretty easy to pick up. I intro them in this course but dive deep in the specific one.
