About the Instructor

Simon Lau Photo

Lead SEI Instructor, General Assembly

Simon loves to structure his thoughts and logical thinking is second nature to him. He sees programming as an extension of a language which he embodies naturally. In this time-pressed world we live in, automation is the solution to tackle the mundane tasks, so that we can all spend our time on more meaningful activities.

With almost 20 years of experience working and sharing his knowledge in this field as an experienced Full Stack Developer and tertiary educator, Simon has deep expertise on languages such as Python, Java, HTML and Javascript. Simon has not only worked on specialised projects but has also shared his knowledge to his students, though his engaging classes.

Simon believes that he has what it takes to help anyone who has a personal interest in programming to grow this knowledge. All they need it is to master the art of logical thinking and the foundation knowledge needed to start a learning journey in this field. He believes that his lessons at the General Assembly will enable you to start your personal journey on programming.
