Laurie Gray iOS Developer Udemy Instructor

Alright Folks! Welcome to Code Disciple. My name is Laurie and I am possibly the happiest iOS developer ever :] I am also an obsessive learner and instructor.

A while back I became a disciple of code – I made the decision to devote my life to the pursuit of becoming a great developer. Code Disciple is a place where I write about what I’m learning, sharing useful resources for those on the same path as well as helping those who are wanting to become developers themselves.

It is one of my goals to enable as many people as possible to begin their journeys as developers.  I’ve created a tonne of resources such as Udemy Courses, Blogs, Live-Streams and Medium Posts to help them as much as possible and have a lot of laughs along the way.

I’m also a member of the raywenderlich.com iOS video instructor team.

Join me in my journey to encourage the world, building great software that makes a difference and changes people’s lives for the better while I love every single minute of it!
