  • Leslie Sibanda

    hey Shrikar first of all just want to say thank you for the create an app series you stated, was going to quite trying to get into the app businsess but thanks to you i’m now back at this giving it another go and i’ve even been accepted for University to study Software Engineering and i created an app for my portfolio based on some of your code.
    Don’t know if this is asking to much but is there any chance of you doing videos with some of your tutorials as i’ve realised that reading the screen can sometimes be intimidating specially for new comers plus with videos your youtube tutorials can become popular
