Why let me teach you?

I work as a Software Engineer at Microsoft where I build products used by millions of people all over the world! I want to take the skills I’ve gained through years of working with some of the best developers in the world and transfer them directly to you!

I’ve taught tens of thousands of students here on Udemy and created some of the most popular development courses available!

Okay so what’s the course about?

I will personally guide you, step by step, in creating your own social network site just like Twitter complete with:

  • Tweets

  • Group chat support

Why should I take the course?

In the programming world, the “big 4” often consists of Google, Microsoft, Facebook and Amazon. To get a job at any of these companies, you absolutely MUST know the essentials: HTML, CSS and JavaScript. As well as this, it is becoming increasingly important to have experience with technologies such as Node.js and database systems such as MongoDB.

If you take this course, you will have nothing to worry about because we use all of these skills extensively!


By enrolling in this course, you will have the COMPLETE support of a Microsoft Software Engineer (me). I’m always ready to answer any question you may have. Programming issues, errors, feature requests, general programming advice – it doesn’t matter, I’m always happy to help! I always aim to respond to questions within a few hours and it’s also worth noting that I’ve answered EVERY SINGLE question asked so far.

Future course discounts:

By enrolling in this course, you will get access to ALL of my current and future courses for the lowest possible discount we as instructors are capable of offering on Udemy – FOREVER.

Project portfolio:

The site you create in this course will be the highlight of your project portfolio! Any potential employer who see’s this project on your resume will want to hear all about it. The reason? They know that a project like this means you’re familiar with the wide range of technical skills they need their employees to know.


Finally, this project is a lot of fun and I know you’ll have a great time implementing your own unique ideas as well as the ones we implement together. What are you waiting for?

* Although this course is suitable for beginners, it is not an introduction to development course. I won’t go into much detail when explaining the basic programming concepts but I’m here to help if you want more of an explanation – just let me know!

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone interested in web development
  • Anyone interested in building a site like Twitter

As usual, Reece provides us with an excellent tutorial on how to create an amazing piece of software by leveraging the latest technology. I’ve learnt a lot with sensei and his courses on creating Spotify and Netflix clones using PHP and MySQL are excellent and now I’m reading to jump into brand new territory. Highly recommended courses!
