I work as a data architect and engineer for FinTek Development. In addition, I have been published in tech magazines hundreds of times and produce technical video how-to content, one of which is my YouTube channel SQL In Six Minutes.
In the decade I've worked in tech, the largest opportunities I've seen involve how firms work with and use their data. From hospitals to businesses to colleges, few organizations understand and use their data effectively. In the same manner, each year brings new challenges which is why my courses are constantly updated with fresh material to benefit long term students.
I am a proponent of the learn-by-doing methodology. Throughout my courses, students are encouraged to complete code challenges to practice what they're learning. I've interviewed many people who could explain theory, but could not complete basic assignments. This type of teaching helps students master learning through application. In addition, my course offers an optional interview to help students get feedback on how to present themselves and their skills to others.
Finally, I've been working with technology since high school where I won awards for development and was the top student in technology, science, mathematics and Spanish. In college, I graduated in the top 1% of my class in information technology. Since I've been working with technology, I have been quick to adopt new platforms and teach them from MongoDB to blockchain to other newer platforms.
