Rod: Well I was a pizza delivery driver and I was in the National Guard and I did a little bit of a stint in college. It wasn’t really for me.

Jake: And so how did you break into the world of web development?

Rod: So I went to this really cool class I hear about through a buddy, It’s called Cloud Wise Academy. I went to the vocational school. You know there was a really awesome atmosphere, really great teachers, and got me on track to become an awesome developer.

Jake: Awesome. And so using the skills that you learned there, you were actually able to help the team here at Startup Weekend, this past weekend to win the whole competition. Can you tell me about that?

Rod: Yes I can. So the classes definitely help me get on track for this, and also you know my career afterward. Everything I learned in the classes prepared me for it. Startup Weekend, I built their website, I did their online marketing campaigns and all that kind of stuff that we do teach here now so.
