Hi, I'm Paulo. I graduated from Whitworth University with a B.S in Computer Science in 2009. After graduating college, I worked for a company, building Android and iOS mobiles apps as well as web applications. In late 2014, my wife inspired me to start teaching online. Up to that point, I had never realized how much I love teaching. It brings me joy and a sense of purpose. I've taught more than 40,000 students from over 170 countries how to program in Java and how to build Android apps. It's humbling to hear students stories: how they have taken my courses and were then to get their dream jobs building apps. Or how some students were struggling to understand Java Programming concepts, and after taking my course, those "hard-to-grasp" concepts were finally well understood. Teaching is my passion. My mission is to help 1 Million students reach their goal of becoming the best developers they can be. I want to make you, a well-rounded developer. Thank you so much for being here. It means the world to me!
