David Delmar, also known as Del, is the Founder and Executive Director of Resilient Coders, an organization that teaches at-risk young people from underserved communities in Boston, how to code.
Del is using his voice to create opportunities, change the face of the tech community, and as some of his former students say, change lives.
Del and I talked about opportunities for women and people of color in technology, redesigning the high school education experience, and more. Listen to the interview below.
