He spoke to high schoolers from across the country interested in becoming professional coders as a guest on the Next Steps panel at the National Youth Leadership Forum (NYLF):Technology and Innovation. This was part of a week-long immersive experience in getting to know the technology industry, put on by the NYLF, which included Hack Reactor as a leading member of the increasingly important coding school space. As the member of our team responsible for ensuring our outcome rates of 99% placed within three months at an average starting salary of $105,000, Williams is an expert on the technology jobs landscape. He was joined on the panels with executives from Draper University, 500 Startups, Dev Bootcamp and Vungle.
