In Going Deep with Aaron by AaronLeave a Comment

Kelauni Cook transformed her life by learning to code. The came to Pittsburgh to attend a 12-week coding bootcamp called The Academy.

 

Now, she heads Black Tech Nation and is developing on the Ethereum network. We discussed race and access in tech. We also profiled her story and eclectic collection of job titles. Kelauni grew up in Chicago and attended Howard University in Washington, D.C., before moving to North Dakota, where she studied to get into a program for sociocultural anthropology.

 

We end up talking about blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.
