About the instructor
I wrote my first game when I was 14 and ever since, programming has been a key part of both work and play in my life. I studied Computer Science at the University of Cambridge where I also taught undergraduates. Before becoming an instructor, I had years of industry experience working as a freelance software engineer working with startups in a wide range of industries.
For me, Udemy is the opportunity to combine my passions for teaching and programming.
