Instructors

Nick Bennett, Lead Instructor, Oracle Certified Professional, JAVA SE8 Programmer

Nick Bennett began programming in high school, continuing through the completion of his B.S. in Mathematics and M.S. in Operations Research & Statistics; that academic background led to an early programming focus on the design and development of decision support systems. As his work has expanded to a wide range of application areas over the years, he has executed projects using dozens of programming languages and dialects, on platforms ranging from mobile devices to mainframes, from standalone machines to complex connected & semi-connected networks. In 1994, Nick began running workshops on business process redesign and automation, targeted to teams of designers and programmers. After moving to New Mexico in 1997, he began working with a number of secondary educational programs, teaching computer programming, modeling, and simulation in after-school and summer programs. This educational work expanded to leading workshops on applied complexity theory and agent-based modeling for teachers in New Mexico and other states, and for health and social policy professionals and academics in Cuba and the Dominican Republic.

Todd Nordquist, Assistant Instructor, Oracle Certified Associate, JAVA SE8 Programmer

Todd’s passion for all things related to computer programming and computer science grew more and more over the past several years. So much so that a year ago he decided to make the change from being a property manager to become a software developer. The Deep Dive Java + Android Bootcamp made that possible. Todd now not only works as an assistant instructor for Deep Dive Coding, but he also does contract work for a large company to upgrade and maintain one of its server based websites. Todd spends his free time going on hiking / backpacking trips with his wife, practicing yoga, and reading historical and sci-fi books.
