Dylan graduated from SDG in January 2019 as part of Cohort XII. He was exposed to coding while building a website through WordPress for his business. Despite having a non-technical background, he became interested in code after that experience. He decided to make a career change to software development to pursue something more intellectually stimulating. After hearing about other alumni success at SDG and attending several meetups, he decided that the program would help him make that career change tremendously. He sold his business, joined SDG, and leaped into the new career head-first!
Dylan is now a full-stack web developer at Bank OZK. When we asked him what his favorite thing about web development/coding was he told us:
Figuring out how to make a technical solution work for a business problem can be really satisfying. Solutions are never clear cut, so you bring your own creativity to the table every day at your job.
