Hi there! I’m Scott and I've got a Computer Science degree and MBA from the University at Buffalo. I've been developing software both professionally and a hobby for as long as I can remember and I've been developing apps for iPhone since the SDK was released 6 years ago.
This app development hobby turned into a rather successful 'lifestyle' business and I've created successful apps such as the first iPad app available for attorneys called iJuror. I've also worked with various clients over my time developing apps and I've made apps for huge marketing campaigns and apps for different professional industries such as mechanical engineering, real estate, and more. In addition I just won the 2014 AT&T WNY Civic App Challenge using many of the same skills I teach my students.
As I've grown as an app developer I've helped teach and mentor friends of mine in app development. I've also been a mentor to app development teams for various entrepreneurial competitions in the Buffalo area, and the teams I've worked on have gone ahead to have much success of their own.
Through these mentoring opportunities I've found that I get more enjoyment out of having a role in helping others to be successful than I do in making my own apps. That's why I'm now here on Udemy so I can help even more people learn the skills to find their own success in app development. I am still going to be developing apps as well so I will always bring the freshest skills and technologies to my courses!
