A Solutions Architect at Tyk. I love solving customer problems and have been doing it for a good while now. I used Udemy quite often in my early career, and strongly recommend a Python Full Stack course that helped me build some really cool apps. With that - API Management is a massive field of unknowns, and we can make it really easy - check out our course intro to understanding APIM and Tyk.
