My name is Tarun and i live in East Dublin. With over 20 years of computer engineering experience and having mentored / taught kids at various coding clubs, I am starting programming classes in our community.

Ever since I started programming, I have always felt that it’s a beautiful form of expression just like art or music and teach important life skills. My experience has shown that kids of all personality type (introverts / extroverts)  find something to relate to it.You can read more about my thoughts  and to sign up for classes  /  interest list , use this link : https://goo.gl/Jhf6Qu
