Alex Bowers started his programming career learning PHP and MySQL for a small project that he wanted to complete. Upon completion of the project, Alex was hooked, and looking to expand his knowledge of programming.

Since then, in his pursuit for knowledge, Alex started teaching others. He started teaching in 2009 on YouTube, amassing over 2,000 subscribers. Since then, he has moved on to teach Python, jQuery, Javascript, HTML, CSS, PHP and MySQL. Alex's primary expertise resides in Web Development, however he has also played his hand at Android and iOS development.

Since Alex began teaching, he has been an active member of the developer community, contributing to Open Source projects and administrating a forum at PHPacademy.

The goal for Alex is simple. To create the best content available for an affordable price, to enable thousands of others to learn what he has learnt, and to expand his own knowledge in the process. To date, Alex is certainly on track, having taught over 100,000 people on Udemy, and many more elsewhere.
