App Academy

Hi, I'm Derick [NYC May cohort]

Hey everyone! I’m Derick Castillo.

I’m originally from Chicago. I Have a degree in Nuclear Medicine, but eventually realized it wasn’t for me. My intro to coding was Code Academy (wife suggested it…She’s a UX Researcher) and I fell in love. Then I looked into coding…and long story short…I got into App Academy and I’m super excited to learn more.

Random facts about me: Love rock climbing, love Tom Misch’s music, love exploring the City, once accidentally won Beyonce tickets, and I’m half Cuban half Filipino.

Looking forward to eventually meeting the rest of yall and learning more code!
