Danilo is a self-taught software developer, interaction designer and technology educator. After a career including independent software development, leading mobile products at startups, and consulting in Silicon Valley, he helps the Social Impact team at GitHub with tech inclusion programs.
Danilo lived in public housing until he was two. Now a self-taught iOS developer, he’s using his technical skills and personal journey to help bring the internet to the thousands living in public housing in the US. We talk to Danilo about the importance of the ConnectHome project, how he navigated his own coding journey, and how he wish he knew sooner that programming wasn’t something that other people did, and that he could do it too.
