Hi, I'm Brian - July Cohort NY

Hello! My name is Brian, I’m a NY native. I have a background in chem but ended up graduating with a bachelor’s in econ from Vanderbilt. After graduating I did a startup/website that had to do with financial research of pharma stocks, then I worked briefly as a consultant, then I took some time off to travel and work as a teacher (China, Russia), then I worked as a physics teacher in Texas before deciding that programming was what I wanted to do as a career. I wanted to make Android apps so I started with Java

Always a high demand for Android developers and most algorithm learning material is in Java so that learning will definitely come in use at/after App Academy.
