Instructor Biography

Avinash Jain, Programmer, Instructor, Student

Hi! I'm Avi. And I'm currently a 16-year-old junior at Lynbrook High School, having taught on Udemy for more than a year. 

Since the age of 5 I've been programming, starting off with basic websites of HTML/CSS and moving up the ladder. I went on to learn Python, made numerous games, and then iPhone development with several apps in the App Store. 

I've always been passionate about teaching from the very start. I'm very enthusiastic in whatever I teach, and if you watch any of my videos, you'll always feel happy :) Coding  may look hard from the outside, but trust me - It's as easy as cake. 

My goal on Udemy is simple -  teach programming to as many people as I can. Well, what are you waiting for? If you've always wanted to learn from a 15-year-old, or just want to learn how to code, join the club now and sign up to any one of my various courses!
