I am an Android app and games developer, and teacher with 30 years of development experience! And I reveal all my knowledge and secrets in my courses! I spent years as a contract software developer working for government departments, and large prestigious companies like Saab, Mitsubishi, and Fujitsu (to name just a few) in a developer/team lead developer capacity. I am skilled in many development languages including Java, C++, C#, and Objective-C to name a few.

Over 53,000 students have taken my courses and loved them. Click here to view Tim Buchalka’s courses (current and coming soon ones).
