TAUGHT BY
  • 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 a popular business school in New York City a few years back. 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 work by night or whenever I find the time for it.

    Recently, I have published 4 iPhone apps (BayViewDoc, ShootFear, WorldReligionsQuotes, EonCoffee) that are currently in the App Store and 2 Android apps in Google Play (EonCoffee, BayViewDental) plus numerous web apps using Sencha Touch, JavaScript, HTML, & jQuery.

    I have also built and maintain a slew of websites including a mini-Craigslist for my local church community (www.bafc.org, I am also a volunteer Sunday school teacher there), real estate properties, home inspection, and currently working on the finishing touch for The Principled Academy.

    I am also running an after school computer club at a local elementary school which meets once a week where kids are introduced to web making and game programming.

    My education consists of a college degree in economics and a masters degree in religious education. I enjoy spending time with my family and do some interesting and fun volunteer work whenever I can.

    I am looking forward to creating many more exciting courses with Udemy!
