Tim’s been a professional software developer for close to 40 years. During his career, he has worked for major companies such as Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, and Saab.
His video courses are used to train developers in major companies such as Mercedes-Benz, Paypal, VW, Pitney Bowes, IBM, and T-Mobile just to name a few (via the Udemy for Business program).
What makes Tim unique is his professional programming career – many instructors have never programmed professionally, let alone had a distinguished professional development career like Tim.
Tim has trained over one million students how to program, way more than a typical IT Professor at a college does in a lifetime.
In fact, Tim’s courses are often purchased by students struggling to get through college programming courses.
“I am learning a lot about Java very quickly. I wish my college courses worked this way, they drag the same amount of material out over months.” – Thomas Neal
“I love this guy. I’m in school for java right now at a local college and I bought this course hoping it would help clarify the fuzzy areas of my coursework. There’s no comparison. Every time I get lost in my textbook, I watch a couple more of these videos and I’m right back on track. He explains everything so perfectly. It sinks right in.” – Kristen Andreani
“Tim is a great instructor, I have more courses from him and all are great. This one really helped me with my understanding of Java from the very beginnings. In fact, I was able to find a job as Java developer with the knowledge gained from this course, so I basically owe Mr. Buchalka my career” – Daniel KubÃ¡nyi
Tim’s mission is simple: to make a difference in your life by helping you to become a software developer. Tim does that through his Java, Python, C#, Spring Framework, and Android development courses.
When Tim started programming over thirty-five years ago, there was no online video training.
There was no “easy” way to learn. The Internet, in its current form, didn’t exist, and as a result, Tim couldn’t “Google” for help, or watch videos on Youtube.
