Whitney joins DBC from Apple, where she started as a junior developer. She later traveled the country, encouraging minority students to consider careers in STEM and carving a new grad recruitment pipeline with Apple's diversity team. Whitney has explored both traditional and slightly unconventional roles in tech, from testing the Kindle Fire at Amazon to approving apps for the iOS App Store; her team recently traveled the globe to launch Transit for Apple Maps in 8 countries. She’s also a Dev Bootcamp San Francisco alum!
Courtney loves the sense of community at Dev Bootcamp, and the dedication DBC has for both building better people and programmers. One of Courtney’s biggest joys about working at DBC is seeing the journey the students take from beginning to end and noticing the changes and growth that happen along the way. Courtney joined DBC back in 2014 as Chicago's program manager and has relocated to open the new campus in sunny Austin, Texas. When Courtney isn't at work hi-fiving everyone in the space you can find her hitting the heavy bags with her boxing skills, watching her beloved Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Blackhawks or exploring all that Austin has to offer!
Joel joined Dev Bootcamp through his connection with their core values and their holistic approach to education. He is a product designer, developer, and entrepreneur with experiences ranging from dropping out of college to co-found his first venture at the age of 18, to working at Google's Creative Lab, to building product at Indeed as a hacker on their Labs team. Most recently he launched and ran a startup while living abroad, through which he also served as Google's Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Capital Factory through CODE2040 in an effort to cultivate diversity in Austin’s local tech community. Joel tries to spend as much time outdoors and loves to travel, mountain bike, surf, make music, and go hiking with his dog Luna.
Garrett grew up in El Paso, Texas and later studied at Texas Tech. He then worked in the oil field for a spell and later took off to Austin for the music, food and brews. He’s a little bit of a food health nut and tries as much as possible to get outside to golf, rock climb, or go mountain biking. He’s worked at Lin-Digital, Q1Media, and with Factory Labs using Ruby, Rails, PHP, Angular, React, MySQL, and Mongodb as Full Stack developer as well as always keeping himself busy learning new languages if he’s not outdoors.
