Subscribe to the Podcast [saf] Got this question the Tube the other day: “can you guide me on what to do first? I’m a complete beginner at web development“ Do you hear the frustration like I do?

Well… here we go again! 🙂 I got this email the other day: “Now I know why people hate you so much!“ Lol! Okay? When I pressed on why, this is what I got: “You’re selfish and you think you are the best. Grow up dude. Be nice with people and help them.“ Now, you couple that
Subscribe to the Podcast [saf] Well, well well… A few of you think ol’ JMO was wrong in a recent episode of the John Morris Show. (How dare you!)

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!
Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination. This ability has enabled me to take my skills and knowledge to the next level. Thank you John for for all that you do.
