Hey everyone! I specialize in Python and C. I've completed Harvard's Computer Science course CS50 and I'd recommend it to anyone interested in the field of computer science. My interests are machine learning and low level programming. I've come to Udemy to make simple and informative courses that anyone can easily understand. The idea is to make courses simple and unclouded with useless information.
