Hi, there!


I’m Praveen - a passionate C# software engineer with over 15 years of C# .NET development experience in various Enterprise applications including Security & Surveillance systems and Access Control systems.


A career in the C# software development industry has been the backbone of my success. The job as a C# programmer has helped me immensely in paying off my educational loan, pay towards my marriage expenses, purchase a new house, and invest for the future.


Throughout my C# .NET programming career, I’ve come across many people like you who find programming as a complex subject and struggle to understand coding concepts. I can easily relate your situation to the one I faced during my internship, where I too felt lost without proper guidance and direction on learning programming. Fortunately, for you, I can mentor during your learning process in this exciting .NET programming field.


Moreover, I felt great satisfaction when teaching others, be it to my friends during college or to my colleagues in the software companies. I have learned a lot right from design, coding, testing, troubleshooting issues at customer sites, etc. Now I started teaching the programming wisdom I had gathered to others who wish to kick start their programming career. I was looking for a way to reach more people to teach them C# programming. I found Online Courses as the best option to teach more people at their own time and pace.


I also share my expertise in C# .NET programming through my YouTube channel.


I grew up in India and I was very interested in computers right from my high school. I hold a Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Science and Engineering.


Regarding my hobbies, I listen to Indian music during work. At home, I love playing Xbox games and spending time with my little daughter.
