My name is Val Okafor, I am a Senior Software Engineer with specialization in Android Development. Learning and problem solving is my passion and I share my Android development knowledge through my blog ValOkafor.com.

My Android courses are the courses I wish I had when I started. I teach Android development in the context of a fully developed Android app. I believe that new Android concepts are better understood if they are presented in the context of creating an app from scratch to finish.

I focus on creating Productivity Android apps and besides Android development I have 7 years’ experience as System Administrator supporting Enterprise applications and 2 years’ experience as a Web Developer building websites using PHP and ASP.Net.

I have worked for corporations such as The Home Depot, American Council on Exercise, Legend3D and HD Supply, Inc. I have a bachelor's degree in Information Technology from National University San Diego, California and a master's degree in Software Engineering from Regis University Denver, Colorado.

I enjoy sharing my extensive work experience through my blog, social media.
