About Steve

Hello. I worked in the software industry for more than 20 years both in large enterprises such as Cisco and Siemens as well as in startups. In the past, I also mentored and tutored underprivileged kids at a group home project and children shelter. I love seeing how excited students get when they have that "Ah ha!" moment and really start to get it.

My specialties are in all things Java, web development (HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript) and most programming languages and topics such as PHP, Python, Node.js, AngularJS, etc. On the enterprise side for adults, I also cover Java EE, building RESTful APIs, user interface and design, networking, security, OpenStack, cloud computing, server and network virtualization, and tools used in software development environment such as Git, Gerrit, Subversion, and Jenkins.

I am very patient with students and will try different ways to get a concept across. We will be very hands-on so it's all about you doing it and then making sure you fully understand what has been done and why something works or not works.

If you need an immediate solution to a programming problem, I may be able to help you. If you are looking for something longer-term, we can schedule a regular time to meet. One other option is to bring a friend, peer or classmate. In programming, it is sometimes better to have a partner to learn with and to bounce ideas off of.
