Hi, I'm John.
You might like some of the things I've done, and maybe you want to work with me. I like developing, designing, and debugging iOS and Android apps. I hack backend APIs in node.js.
I started a consulting company in NYC called BitFountain. The real goal of BitFountain was to build a community of coding craftsmen. To accomplish this goal, we hosted a three month long apprentice program. We also teach a bunch of courses at General Assembly, as well as host iOS Office Hours in conjuntion with our friends at Gilt
Founding BitFountain helped me change lives. We turned five people into full time developers with our apprentice program, and kickstarted hundreds of other students into tech fields with our workshops at General Assembly. I'm proud of this.
To reach more people I decided to start Code Coalition, a trade school for the 21st century. We're porting our three month apprentice program into an affordable and accessible online course that embodies the MOOC philosophy. More courses are on the way.
