Before joining code school, Colin worked crunching numbers at a giant company. The job itself had little to no demands on his creativity or intelligence, and he hated wearing collared shirts. After a friend went through the bootcamp, he recommended it to Colin. He decided to attend the Iron Yard and began a career as a developer. Colin now works as a software developer at Exzeo and still stays involved with the SDG team (previously known as TIY team) by helping out with the React Meetup. His favorite thing about web development is, of course, the dress code.
