Saul Costa is the founder and CEO of Next Tech, a company committed to making tech education accessible for everyone. He founded Next Tech in 2014 after tutoring classmates in programming during college, where he found that they were often derailed by the complexity of the tools they were using to learn to code. Since 2014, Next Tech has helped hundreds of thousands of students around the world master tech skills with the carefully crafted programming tools it provides. Before founding Next Tech, Saul graduated early with a computer science degree from Norwich University, a private military school in Vermont. He then joined a venture funded analytics startup in San Francisco as a data engineer, where he built software that processes billions of data points each month. Outside the office, Saul enjoys hiking, surfing the California coast, and visiting new places around the world. You can find him on LinkedIn at linkedin.com/in/saulcosta.
