There is 8.5 hours of video content for you to complete. You will spend an additional 15-20 hours working on exercises to help you retain the knowledge.


  • All of my courses are screencasts Youtube style - SUPER FUN
  • I ALWAYS teach you the underlying principle (and not just do X,Y,Z)
  • I actively personally help my students in their career goals
  • I have a HUGE free chatroom where you can get help (4500+ active members)

"I am a veteran mobile developer having built over 57 mobile apps for iOS and Android. I owned two tech consulting companies that were highly successful. I have worked on Call of Duty and worked with other top titles and companies such as Logitech, Yellow Pages, the LDS Church, Cookie Dough Bites, and many more.

I also spend most of my days now as a professional engineering instructor - changing the lives of students throughout the world - going from being broke to making up to 85k+ a year within 6 months.

My passion is helping people reveal hidden talents and guide them into the world of startups and programming. I currently am teaching iOS 9, Apple TV & tvOS, React & Flux web development, Objective-C, Swift 2, Android, Javascript, Node, and Java."
