Instructor Biography


My name is Robin Haney, I am a professional Web Developer and blogger. I have been designing and building websites for over 5+ years. I work completely from home as a freelance web developer and I love it!

I'm also a best selling author on Amazon and have written a few programming books that have done really well. If you prefer a more hands on approach to learning then my video courses on Udemy will be perfect for you.

I'm here to show you how you can do the same. I've designed and created a lot of websites and I know its hard work but don't worry I've created my courses so that even beginners can easily follow along and work with me.

I've started my own online business at a young age and after being a best selling instructor on Udemy I am very proud of my courses. If you are just starting out then I'd recommend you look over my FREE courses first and then continue to my paid courses when you are ready.

Please enroll today and I look forward to seeing you!
