Why learn BLE the hard way when you can get expert help instead?

I’m Mohammad Afaneh, the founder of the Bluetooth Developer Academy.

I’ve been on your journey.

I’ve gone from Bluetooth beginner to expert. I’ve spent years working on multiple IoT products like door locks, satellite receivers, doorbells, and many other side projects.

I’ve felt the pain of the often enormous Bluetooth learning curve.

I learned the hard way, wasting days and weeks getting up to speed while struggling with poor or non-existent resources. 

That’s why I created the Bluetooth Developer Academy – so you don’t have to learn the hard way, and can level up in no time instead.

I’m a big believer in both learning by doing and learning from others' experiences. That’s why I’ve included both in-depth tutorials and courses, and a private community for everyone to interact with and learn from each other.

I’d love for you to check out the Academy and let me know what you think. My number one priority is to get you up to speed with BLE's best practices and keep you up-to-date on the latest in Bluetooth technology. All, so you’re equipped to tackle your projects confidently and quickly... and ship on time

Sound good? Join today.

I have been working with Bluetooth Low Energy radios for close to 10 years, and proprietary low power radios for decades before that. After only being in existence for the last month, this new Bluetooth Developer Academy is rapidly shaping up to be a huge reference and source of support for developers who are working with BLE. Both embedded BLE SOCs and Smartphone BLE implementations are being addressed in detail. Some of the projects being implement will be the definitive ‘source of truth’ for all aspects of BLE development.
If you're developing a BLE project, you need two things, a good BLE sniffer and the Bluetooth Developer Academy. I am very happy to be part of this community and look forward to what comes next.

I’ve been following Mohammad/Novel Bits for a while now and he always does an incredible job putting together high-quality and easy to understand articles and tutorials. Mohammad has a knack for finding and highlighting the places where people are most likely to get stuck. Many times my searches would end up at NovelBits.io and I would find an answer to a problem.
That’s why when I heard about the “Bluetooth Developer Academy” (BDA) I immediately signed up. The BDA has a wealth of resources and knowledge for Engineers who are serious about designing and optimizing their BLE products and is also a great place for those who just start out or want to understand more details. Aside from other BLE experts, Mohammad himself is VERY active on the forum and personally helps fellow engineers with their design challenges. I can highly recommend the BDA!

The Bluetooth Developer Academy is not only a great place to find a myriad of documentation and information about BLE - from descriptions of BLE chipsets and modules to how to navigate the Core specs - but is also a nice BLE virtual 'MeetUp' with people contributing concrete examples, pitfalls, suggestions, and advise.  I look forward to the continued growth of the Academy to help me find my way through vendor tools, coding suggestions, and yes, Bluetooth jobs. This should be the preferred watering hole for every Bluetooth engineer!

I'm a software developer with 30+ years in the industry. It's my work, my hobby, and my passion. I like to learn and make something new almost every day. A year ago I've started to deep dive into wonderful world of IoT. Reading official specs is good but as a newcomer, I needed a more gentle introduction and a smooth learning curve and I found Mohammad's blog with very cool articles and book for developers, and... the Bluetooth Developer Academy - an amazing community of experienced developers, where I can ask for help and share my own projects for discussion.

The Bluetooth Developer Academy is a great resource for navigating and saving time in Bluetooth and BLE product development.  Bluetooth and BLE communication protocol offers many benefits but can be difficult to implement especially to those new to the protocol.  The developer forums and examples are great tools and will save hours of work and headaches.  As a product developer the Bluetooth Developer Academy was just what I was looking for.
