I am a self taught programmer and learning enthusiast. My expertise is mainly in Artificial Intelligence (Keras), Ruby on Rails web development, Python and Linux. I hope that my courses will help students learn things that I had difficulty with in an easier and more fun way. These courses are meant to be short, sweet and quick to the point.
