Accepted to The Flatiron School for iOS Development

It’s official- I got accepted into The Flatiron School for iOS Development this Summer. The Flatiron School is a 12 week immersive coding camp that provides admitted students with the practical skills necessary to work as professional web and mobile app developers. I just finished my second year as a strength coach for New York University, so the transition from sports performance to computer programming cannot be any faster. Nevertheless, I am extremely excited to get going with the program come June.
