Instructor Biography

Joey Tawadrous, App & Web Developer, Teacher, Blogger @ joeyt.net

Hi there! I'm Joey and I've got a Computer Science degree from University College Cork in Ireland. I've been developing both professionally and as a hobby for several years now & I can honestly say I'm hooked!

I have created lots of different mobile applications from motivational to do lists to apps that help you manage diabetes. I've developed both professionally and for my own leisure. I have a long list of apps in the making & I am always researching emerging technologies.

As I've grown as an app developer I've helped teach and mentor friends of mine in app development. I've also been a mentor / developer to app development teams for various entrepreneurial competitions and hackathons in Ireland, with ongoing interest.

Through these mentoring opportunities I've found that I get more enjoyment out of having a role in helping others to be successful than I do in making my own apps. That's why I'm now here on Udemy so I can help even more people learn the skills to find their own success in app development. I am still going to be developing apps as well so I will always bring the freshest skills and technologies to my courses!
