Instructor Biography

Michel Martin, Formateur informatique

Bonjour à tous,

Je m'appelle Michel Martin. Je suis ingénieur ESIEA, MVP Microsoft depuis 2004, auteur de plus de 350 livres d'informatique et de formations vidéo, créateur de sites Web et formateur en entreprise.

A travers mes formations vidéo sur Udemy, je vais vous faire partager ma passion pour l'informatique et l'électronique.

J'ai commencé à créer des formations vidéo en 2000. Depuis toutes ces années, la technique utilisée a énormément varié. Aujourd'hui, mes vidéos sont toujours courtes et directes. Elles traitent un sujet ou un problème spécifique et vous montrent en quelques minutes comment le résoudre.

Si vous avez des questions sur cette formation, je serais heureux d'y répondre. N'hésitez pas à me joindre pour en discuter avec moi.
