What YouTube Has Done For Me

Creating YouTube videos has forced me to understand programming concepts better, learn about marketing and design, build a personal brand, and so much more. It takes a lot more than just writing a few lines of code.

You'll learn more from creating YouTube videos than you ever did watching them!

My YouTube channel is something I proudly display on my own resume as a testament to my skills, hard work, and passion. I never would have thought that YouTube would lead to so many opportunities, but I don't think the following would have been possible without it.

  • Developer Advocate at Auth0
  • Programming Bootcamp Instructor
  • Entrepreneur (selling courses, freelance video creation, etc.)

Hi! I'm James

I'm a developer, speaker, and teacher with a passion for web development, design, and developer tools. I have taught tens of thousands of students online/in-person and am excited to share with you. 

In my spare time, I run a YouTube channel, play co-ed soccer with my wife, spend time with my dogs, and can solve a Rubik's cube in under two minutes.
