Your Instructor & Delivery

You will be taught by Dr Raoul-Gabriel Urma in a virtual live coding delivery using Zoom.

Raoul holds a PhD in Computer Science from Cambridge University as well as a MEng in Computer Science from Imperial College London and graduated with first-class honours, having won several prizes for technical innovation.

Raoul has advised and worked for several organisations on large-scale software engineering projects including at Google, Oracle, eBay and Goldman Sachs.

He is also author of several programming books, including the best-seller “Modern Java in Action: lambdas, streams, functional and reactive programming” which sold over 30,000 copies globally and with a second edition published in November 2018 as well as “Real-World Software Development” published in December 2019.

He was nominated an Oracle Java Champion in 2017. He is also an international speaker having delivered over 100 talks covering Emerging Technologies, Entrepreneurship, Java and Python.
