About the Instructor

Tyler Pugh Photo

Senior Software Engineer ,
Consultant

At an early age, Tyler gained a serious passion for web design that was strengthened at St. Edwards University while earning a degree in Computer Science. Before graduation, he scoured Craigslist to pick up freelance design opportunities and eventually he joined a music promotion company called Scoremore. When not attending their electronic concerts, Tyler focused on creating Wordpress websites for various musicians and designing flyers for Scoremore's upcoming shows. Just after graduation, he accepted a position at a software development company where he co-founded a learning application called Trails.by. This gave him the opportunity to really develop his skills on the front and back end working with PHP, HTML, CSS, and Javascript (Node.js and client-side). With experience under his belt, in 2014 he co-founded an enterprise social networking tool called Caboh. As the only developer, Tyler got to tackle everything from chat servers to pretty buttons on a daily basis. He's now a local startup constant. When Tyler isn't at work, he is probably buying random domain names or giving brewery tours at Independence Brewing Company with an IPA in hand. Tyler is an enthusiastic teacher that is willing to go the extra mile for anyone that shows dedication and interest.
