Joseph Gohl

Course Instructor With over 25 years experience in programming applications in nearly every language available, there just isn't a programming problem I haven't yet encountered or couldn't easily solve with enough persistence--or at the very least, provide a clever work around. Anything is possible! Particularly with programming software. With a liberal arts background and graduate work in Computing, Technology, and Education, I'm in a unique position to help bridge the gap for non-technical users to understand programming and technology without getting too heavy-handed in the tech jargon.
