My name is Stephen Rao and I am a computer teacher in New Jersey. Teaching my students how to use a variety of applications has led me to Udemy. In the summer of 2014, I set out to learn code to inspire my students in computer science. After learning obj-c I am now a published developer in the Apple App Store. I have turned to teaching a Udemy course to help those accomplish tools that I am an expert in. I have a Masters in Instructional Technology where I focus on professional development. I am confident that you will be able to gain the best information possible and fulfill your need to know.
