Prior to becoming an iOS developer, Rocketeer Alex McGregor was working in public accounting as an IT auditor. Alex said that within six months, he knew the life of an IT auditor was not for him. “I wanted to build something I could show to my friends and family and be proud of my work,” he said.
Reknowned development instructor and co-founder of Code Coalition, Eliot Arntz, took on the role as McGregor’s mentor, meeting once or twice a week to review code, debugging, paired coding, architecture, best practices and to discuss current events in iOS.
Following intense training, Alex went on to pursue his development career and is currently an iOS development rock star here at Bottle Rocket! He says, “If you’re thinking about making the shift like I did, don’t waste any more time. Dive in. Build beautiful things that people love.”
