Alec Simon

Alec Simon has been programming for around 10 years and teaching for almost 5 years. He always tries to live life presently and to the fullest. Some of the things I love to do in my spare time include mountain biking, nerding out on personal finance, traveling to new places, watching sports (huge baseball fan here!), and sharing meals with friends and family. Most days you can find me spending quality time with my lovely wife, twin boys (and soon to be girl), and dog Ashby.

Alec Simon is a great instructor. He definitely knows his stuff and you can see that he cares for your learning process. Alec can go somewhat quickly through his lessons but you can always rewatch the video to understand the content. I am thinking of taking more of his courses, which just says how good of an instructor he is.

Alec is one of the best instructors I have had in a long time. His classes are very informative and he is extremely knowledgeable. His teaching style is very good and I would recommend any course he teaches to my friends and family.

Alec was a great instructor! He really knew his stuff and he was super helpful when solving my problems. Alec is the instructor that you can have a nice chat with if you have any problems with anything. Definitely would take his other courses to learn new things.
