Youth in Technology at Vision Quest
After our President, Darrick Baxter co-presented at the 2016 Vision Quest conference in Winnipeg Manitoba, he met with the audience and an amazing University of Manitoba Computer science student named Jordan.
“I meet interesting people everyday and enjoy listening to their remarkable stories. When Jordan introduced himself and eloquently explained his previous summer job in robotics – I knew he was a true technologist and invited him to our App Development office for an interview.” – Darrick Baxter
