About the Instructor

Riley Dallas Photo

Instructor, Austin Delivered lectures for 80+ cohorts,

Riley is a software engineer in Austin, TX. He graduated with a degree in Marketing from Texas A&M University, which led to a job as a roofer. He quickly realized he needed a marketable skill and started selling websites to small businesses while simultaneously learning how to code. In 2008, he learned Ruby on Rails in order to turn his idea for a web app into a reality. ChubbyGrub was the result, and has been featured on LifeHacker, The Consumerist, and CNBC.com. Recently he made the transition to Data Science, finishing in the top 13% of the 2017 March Madness Kaggle Competition.

In recognition of his exemplary service in the classroom, Riley has been selected as a member of General Assembly's Distinguished Faculty program.

Hobson Lane Photo

Cofounder and CTO, Tangible AI

I develop conversational AI that assists instead of manipulates. We're building machine intelligence that can be directly controlled by humans, instead of the other way around. Volunteers and I are building a conversational AI for education at UCSD.edu, Springboard.com, TangibleAI.com, and NLPIA.org. Everything I do is open source, open data, open science.
