I love this digital era!

I always loved computers and technology in general. In 2011 I was lucky enough to be invited to Udemy as an instructor after they saw my youtube coding video tutorials. From my video tutorials I've put together an awesome course on Udemy covering web development from top to bottom called "Become a Web Developer from Scratch" which still stands as one of Udemy top-sellers of all time. 

In 2013 and 2014 I was basically a sensation all over the web and became one of the most successful instructors on the Internet. My story has been covered on the Wall Street Journal, MIT Journal, Slate and the Sydney Morning Herald.

I'm now focused on creating more top-notch courses on Udemy and creating the best community for aspiring developers. You can also check my latest project called Onclick Academy, an online coding school where users will be able to learn, share and develop web apps with other developers. I'm also the CEO of Web Labs, a startup company who's mission is to provide digital content for e-learning platforms all over the world.
