Instructor Biography

Wilson Wang, Software Engineer, Homo Sapien, Maker of Things

Hi! My name is Wilson, and I am teaching on Udemy because I want to pass on what I've learned.

My areas of expertise are software development/programming and physics. I have been creating apps and websites ever since I started high school, so I have quite a lot of experience doing that. In particular I have figured out the most straightforward way to create apps and websites, so in my courses you will save lots of time by not learning superfluous information.

I am also highly qualified to teach physics. In high school I achieved a near-perfect score on the AP Physics C test, and I also won a Gold Medal in the US Physics Olympiad.

Finally, even if you don't like science or technology, I still recommend you try them out. By studying science and technology you get a unique viewpoint of the world which will separate you from everyone else - while the general public sees X, you will see Y and be able to capitalize on these insights.

I hope you find my courses helpful, and if you have any suggestions please tell me!
