The myth of the brilliant, self-taught tech entrepreneur has a stronghold on the American imagination. When people think of Bill Gates, they think of a smart young man who grew up at the right place at the right time to foster his love of computers. In reality, he attended an exclusive prep school where he was afforded plenty of computer time—rare at the time—which gave him a head-start on his peers in computer science.
Like Gates, we want to help YOU Unleash Your Inner Geek!
