Thanks for teaching Python. I'm really enjoying your course. Very impressive and easy to follow and easy to learn with your path. :) I`m 57 years old and wanted to learn Python so I was looking for a good course I can follow along easily and this is the one. I highly recommend this course for Beginners who want to dive into Python.

My programming journey started as a home school kid with a Texas Instruments TI-99 back in the 80’s. Yes, I was around then (but barely missed the 70’s). My first programs consisted of copying BASIC programs from library books and then tweaking them to see what they would do. In the mid-90’s, as a teen I learned C++ and Pascal with Borland Delphi. I loved programming and the infinite possibilities it opened up to create things.

I continued on to earn a Computer Science degree from Texas Tech University.  My first paid position was as an intern at IBM testing the OS/2 Warp operating system. I thought it was cool to work on a product I’d seen advertised on TV. When I graduated, I took a position at IBM as a Software Engineer doing Java development and testing on financial service products. I then moved to a small company.  I started as a software engineer and eventually became chief architect. The work was fun and interesting and I got to work on cool projects for big brands like Microsoft, Trans-America, and Alaskan Brewing.    Then I set out and started my own company building custom software solutions.  I’ve had the privilege of  creating solutions for precision agriculture, warehousing, and even sports scouting software.

In addition to being a software engineer, I am a husband and dad to 4 beautiful children. I love swimming, spending time with my family, and being outdoors when I can.    Homeschool Code Academy was born out of my desire to share my knowledge and skills with my own kids.   

It is my hope that the courses we provide will unleash your student's creativity and equip them with valuable skills for their future.
