Tyler got his start in tech and software development in Dothan, Alabama by building websites for family friends with small businesses. After a few months, he learned a lot about web development, and continued to expand on his knowledge. Within a couple of years, he had several long term clients that he built web applications for, and along the way, he gained practical experience in different technologies, and in working with people. While doing freelance work, he went to school and majored in Computer Science to build more of a foundation and to learn more about programming and software development. After working as a freelancer for a couple of years, he got his first full time job as a software engineer for a start up. Now, Tyler has been working with Iterate primarily working on front end development.
