Experience as (Web) Developer
I'm started with programming at the age of 18 and I've been doing that ever since. During my initial days, I used to work with C, C++, Java, and C#. I've worked on various projects involving these programming languages. I also have a little bit of experience with Windows and BlackBerry Mobile App development. I also participated in a few developer programs during my college days and won many accolades.
This interest in programming languages led me to work as a Full Stack Web Developer and Consultant for one of the world's most valuable company. The success and fun I have in this job is immense and really keeps that passion burningly alive.
I've worked on a lot of digital transformation engagements involving content management systems like AEM, chatbots, and single-page applications built with Angular and React. My current job also takes me to different countries and geographies. I'm currently based out in Sydney, Australia.
Experience as Instructor
Apart from my regular work, I'm also really passionate about teaching and mentoring people. I've been doing this ever since I started programming. I used to organize events where I took sessions on various programming languages in my college.
I started doing that more passionately and seriously when I was first asked to mentor a batch of fresh recruits in my organization. I've never looked back ever since.
I've conducted several learning sessions, and workshops on technologies like Angular and NodeJS. I've learned most of these technologies myself and I know exactly where someone can get stuck. And through my courses and sessions, I try to focus on the most relevant key concepts and topics. Here on Udemy, I've mentored around 56,000+ Students through two of my courses. I've seen a lot of my students getting new or better jobs, build awesome web applications, acquire amazing projects, or simply enjoy their hobby as a web developer with the help of my content.
I also try to write about Angular on StackOverflow, ThePracticalDev Community, and Medium.
This passion for mentoring and sharing my knowledge also got me recognized by Google as a Developer Expert in Angular.
I give talks and host free workshops from time to time. To stay up to date on such free events, do feel free to follow me on Twitter(@SiddAjmera)
