Hi! I'm Roger. I have a degree in Mathematics from Cambridge University and you might call me a bit of coding geek.
After building websites for friends and family for fun, I soon learned that web development was a very lucrative career choice. I gave up my successful (and sometimes stressful) job as a teacher to work part time and today, couldn't be happier.
I'm passionate about teaching people to code, so every summer I run Code School in the beautiful city of Cambridge. I also run the popular web hosting and design service, Simply Web Hosting which allows me to get first hand experience in web design for clients and I want to share my secrets with people like you.
The course was a great engaging learning experience in web development, very comprehensive, concise and well-structured, taught by somebody who definitely knows what to teach, how to teach, when to bring in relevant sections and snippets. Very highly recommended!
When you complete the course, you’ll have a finished project that you’ll be proud to use and share.
