It’s been less than a year since we opened our campus in Detroit, and since then we’ve met and worked with tons of inspiring people in the Detroit tech industry. Today we’re introducing you to one of our current students, Chris Newby. Chris had dabbled in coding here and there, but he never considered it a career path. After high school, he took a few college classes, but never finished.
He landed a job at a parts plant and worked there for three years before finding The Iron Yard. It didn’t take long for Chris to make the decision to enroll. We recently sat down with him and talked a bit more about his journey, how class is going, and where he wants to go from here.
