I have developed web and mobile apps for the last 15 years for companies, academia, and the military. I have a Masters in Computer Science, and I supported myself in university by teaching and tutoring other students. I've learned various technologies over the years, such as Java, C/C++ and Ruby. When the iPhone was released back in 2007, my interest switched to building native apps for a few years. More recently, I switched back to developing mobile apps using web technologies. At first, I developed mobile web apps from scratch without a framework, and I have since become a strong proponent of Ionic 1 & now Ionic 2. I now use my broad background in web and mobile to teach others how to crate highly engaging mobile web apps using Ionic 2.
