Hello! I am
Byron Jenkins,

a Software Engineer & Content Creator.

Naturally, I was engaged with the sport and lifestyle of boxing due to my father being a trainer/cornerman/cutman for 40+ years. Although Boxing was my first passion, I always questioned, "Is this the path I chose or inherited?"

Actively using my family's computer and AOL dialup, I endlessly questioned the functionality of computers. My mother literally used the computer as a tool for bribing me to go to & do good in school. As my curiosity for technology grew, my investment in boxing shifted. I was interested in technology; however, the schools I attended did not offer any programming courses. I took it upon myself and got a head start by learning via Google and coding sites like Codecademy.com. I then pursued and obtained my Bachelors of Science in Computer Science from Temple University.

I currently use social media platforms to deliver educational content about Computer Science. My goal is to reach and encourage the minority community as we are underrepresented in STEM.
