Meet Anthony Alicea.
Software Developer, Architect, and UX Designer
Hailing from Cleveland Ohio, Anthony “Tony” Alicea has been programming since he was 12 years old (much like fellow Udemy instructor and developer Angela Yu) and started developing websites and web apps at age 16.
Once he graduated with a Computer Science degree from Case Western Reserve University, Tony went on as a Microsoft-certified software app developer and architect, database designer, & user interface designer.
His courses focus largely on the theoretical aspects of any given technology, and he believes that understanding any topic on a deep level allows students to properly learn it. This allows one to quickly solve problems in real-world settings, an invaluable skill!
As Tony explains, “Examples need to be built on top of context, and once you have context, you can not only copy the examples you find, but adjust and improve upon them.”
He welcomes students with the following message: “It is my pleasure and privilege to teach you. I hope you’ll come away knowing something you didn’t before, understanding at a level deeper than before, and feeling positive that you can accomplish what you’ve set out to accomplish. Thank you!”
