Tyler and I met at our first engineering jobs. I grew up in abject poverty, in Mogotio, Kenya. Although I didn’t use a keyboard until I was eighteen, I now enjoy a successful career as a software engineer. I believe, through technology, my African community can find a sustainable solution to poverty.
As a couple and software engineers, we believe adoption of technology is the most effective equalizer.
Tyler is a self-taught programmer from Shabbona, Illinois.

Tyler is proof that a motivated person can gain skills if they have access to the right technology and content
