A couple of decades ago, I got my first computer, a ZX-Spektrum. This is how it’s started, and programming computers became an integral part of my life. As I got my hands on my very first computer, I knew that programming will play an important role in my life. Fresh out of university I started working at a big software company. Although I had worked on great projects, I've never felt accomplished by just doing the usual 9-to-5 work. My side-projects were the ones that made me feel alive. I wrote three books: the first one on the practical aspects of programming in C++. The second and the third book was about DirectX programming and shaders.
In 2007 Steve Jobs announced the first iPhone, which changed many things. The iPhone App Store opened on July 10, 2008, and changed the lives of many aspiring app developers, including mine. I published my very first iOS game in September 2009. Since then, I’ve developed many apps and games, some of which (my Travel Assistant, GiftShopper, iSyslog) were featured by Apple and mentioned by big media outlets.
I started creating online courses in March 2016. I've published courses on Udemy, Pluralsight, and Lynda. Teaching has always been my passion and now I can finally reach a broader audience. In December 2016 I quit the corporate world so that I can fully dedicate myself to creating courses and working on projects I'm passionate about.
