Akira Wong

Web Development Instructor, General Assembly

Singapore

In 5th grade, Akira learned to program on an Apple IIe.

About 8 years ago he came back to programming as a professional career after a youth spent trying to become a professional cyclist.

His career as a developer started in San Francisco and has included startups, consulting work, and personal open-source projects, all across a wide range of different platforms, stacks and languages- from dev-ops in AWS to chrome apps in angular.js

He enjoys thinking about the craft and culture of programming and teaching it to others.

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