Teaching

I currently teach entrepreneurship, creative intelligence, enterprise software development and web development.


Entrepreneurship

If you’ve got an idea for a startup (or if you've already started), then come to my free “Start-up Clinic”. It currently runs each Wednesday from 2pm to 3:30pm. I meet at the University of Technology Sydney, Building 11, Level 7. Don't be shy. Everyone is welcome. Appointments are essential: send me an email to confirm.

The purpose is to help you build a real business. We take the first step, then work step-by-step. Every action is about building and growing your business.

If you're a student at UTS, there may be an option for getting course credit. The clinic serves as an entry into an elective that I piloted in Spring 2016 and will launch in Spring 2017.

The clinic is based on a proven program that has worked for many student-founded businesses. It is very hands-on. There's minimal talk. Instead, you take action to get real results.

Creative Intelligence

I teach an intensive Winter School on creativity and creative intelligence. This subject challenges students to identify an apparently impossible problem and find creative ways to bring the problem into the realm of possibility. If you're a UTS student (from any faculty), please consider enrolling in 81539.

In addition, I have taught design thinking bootcamps and internal innovation programs at the University of Technology Sydney.

Enterprise and Web Development

I have taught and continue to teach enterprise development and web development in C# / ASP.NET and Java / Java EE.

I also mentor student projects in a diverse range of tools and platforms. In addition to C# and Java, these include Python, Node, C++, mobile apps, robotics, artificial intelligence and internet of things.

Please get in touch if you have a great project idea.
