To say that Quincy Larson is a teacher is an understatement. Quincy Larson is an accomplished writer, mentor, and founder of FreeCodeCamp.com which is an organization that teaches over 400,000 students how to become job ready developers. What is the catch? Just hard work and a 1200 hour course that will transform you into a coding Ninja. Coding skills can make you some serious cash. The fact is that thousands of developer jobs go unfullfilled every year and with most developers making a six figure income, it is a skill worth picking up.  Quincy and I talk about the future of tech and what the future may potentially bring us, AI included. I truly enjoyed this interchange of thoughts and ideas with Quincy, and whatever you do, don’t say that you are not natually good at coding, because as Quincy points out, “no one is.”
