Instructor Biography

David Chen , Do-It-Yourself

Hello, thanks for checking out my course!

I am a Microsoft Certified Professional and have taught computer software training at Drake's Business School in New York City. I now reside in the Bay Area in California with my family and work at a full time job by day and spend my time doing some freelance computer work whenever possible.

I am a self taught web developer. The courses I offered here are very hands on and the focus is to get the job done as quickly as possible. If you want a more formal approach to learning then you will probably want to learn from more standardized textbooks or courses which will most likely require a lot more time and ofcourse you'll get a lot more in depth knowledge.

However, if you're short on time and want to be able to learn how to do something quickly and easily right away then you've come to the right place.

Sincerely,

David
