Have you ever wondered what it takes to learn to code? André Williams never did, at least not until fate intervened. In this episode Williams shares his remarkable story: from overcoming an injury that ended his dreams of becoming a professional soccer player; to cofounding the vegan tech startup Acumeal during high school; then representing the state of Texas in the House of Representatives, while he pitched his mobile app Ending Intelligence; and beyond with Williams' aspirations to contribute to the growing A.I. field, in Make School's accelerated Bachelor's degree program in Applied Computer Science. It was a joy to pick Williams' brain about self-guided learning (among other things), and I hope you get a lot out of this episode!
