About our guest
Kyle Ofori (@KyleOfor) was a mobile developer at Detroit Labs from September 2014 to July of 2016. His primary platform is Android, though he has since explored iOS and web development languages. He is a graduate of Detroit Labs’ apprenticeship program. Kyle enjoys teaching young people about the fundamentals of computer programming as a way to provide them with new opportunities; he recently co-taught a course in web development. He has been an enthusiastic resident of Detroit, though he is now moving away for graduate school.
Brandy Foster (@bcwf) is an Android Developer at Detroit Labs. She started her journey into the controlled chaotic world of app development through the DL apprenticeship program in 2014. She graduated the program in 2015 after having to take an additional month to recreate her final project. Since then she’s been on a team working with an automotive company. She’s like, Cinderella only Black and she doesn’t dust. Brandy’s full time job is that of a mother to two amazing boys who simultaneously drive her insane and to greater levels of patience. As the eldest approaches puberty, she’s almost reached saint status. She’s an avid reader of science fiction. An ex-gamer. Occasional poet. Always self.
