About This Course
The Master YAML For Home Assistant course will take you through everything that you need to know about YAML so that you can write your own fully featured YAML configurations in Home Assistant.
At a glance YAML can seem a little intimidating and you might think that there is a lot of work to learn it, particularly if you don’t have any prior programming experience.
However YAML is designed to be human-readable and therefore can be quick and easy for anyone to learn with the right guidance.
If you have been using Home Assistant but have been shying away from YAML, this course can change that and turn you into a YAML pro!

FINALLY a course which tells you EVERYTHING!
So I’ve had home assistant for around 3-6 months, probably longer! I’ve done everything I can with the limited amount of hardware I have that I can do using the UI. I always knew about yaml and that you could do so much more than you could do in the UI. Everyone says Home Assistant has a very steep learning curve and this includes yaml which almost felt actually quite intimidating. Using this course it has guided me through exactly what to do and when. It’s also mentions about the indentation which HA is very finicky about! I would recommend to keep doing this course until it’s stuck in your brain, I also followed along doing exactly what it said in my HA installation. I would recommend using the copy code button instead of typing the code in so you can get the indentation correct and just modify it from there. There are parts of the course which you can do once, like the file structure, and things you have to do each time, like the yaml coding for scenes, scripts and automations.
This is finally a course which tells you everything and guides you through in a step by step method of how to do it and integrate it into your system. I will most definitely go over this again and again till its stuck in my brain then hopefully I’ll be able to go even further and become a true HA pro!
