Back-End Teacher & Author

I’m a team lead with LampDev. I’ve been a web-developer since 2010, and have worked with clients from dozens of countries. Within my company, I’ve taught more than 15 beginning developers. Some of them founded their small companies later. I love constantly developing – it’s not boring. When I started work, it was interesting to get outside of Back-End. And now, when teaching, I love to explain difficult things by way of simple examples. In my free time, I do sports.

The course passed easily and free of hassle. The teacher always supported us and answered any questions we had, even those which weren't really planned for the course. Our Regional Coordinator cheered us up and never allowed us to give up. I would definitely recommend Beetroot Academy to my friends and acquaintances.
