Hi! I'm Caleb. I have created over 1,500 tutorials on data, software development, cryptocurrency, etc. I believe that the way I teach is what matters. I don’t flash big words without explaining them and I don’t assume knowledge.

I keep it simple

My goal is to simplify complex problems for anyone to understand. I'm not your typical "teachers who can create an entire course without actually explaining anything.

I keep it detailed

I also like to be thorough. If you watch my content and don’t leave with a new understanding, then I am not doing my job.

I keep it fun

My primary goal is not to put you to sleep as I read an encyclopedia from slides (I prefer dictionaries). Actually, I kinda hate Powerpoint. My unique approach has caused my videos to be watched 91 years (that’s 800K hours of watchtime on YouTube alone).

I am now a tech trainer with this resume:

170k+ YouTube subscribers

180k+ Udemy students

Ex-IBMer and Ex-Software Engineer

O’reilly Live trainer and course author

International speaker on data and Software Development

10 years of coding experience

I love teaching, and I’m beyond excited to have you join me in the learning process.


June 4th, 2012.  I decided to take my skill set to the next level and learn how to professionally program databases as well as websites.  After just graduating my Junior year of high school, I did not have a typical summer vacation.  Rather, I studied daily and prepared for this new goal of mine.  By July 23rd, I uploaded my first class in this new mindset of determination.  Since then, I have created over 1,500 educational classes over database Design, programming, web development, and more.
