Education


42 Silicon Valley

Aug 2016 - Apr 2018 (1 year)

42 is a nonprofit, tuition-free programming school created and funded by French billionare and philanthropist, Xavier Niel. This 3-5 year program departs from the traditional education experience by using a peer-to-peer based learning system with no classes or teachers and a purely project-based curriculum. To learn more, visit 42.us.org.

I worked with my peers on projects involving computer graphics and low level computing. Went on to learn about web development using PHP during an intense web development program. And quickly achieved my first internship.
