Outdoorsy. Adventurous. Nerd.
As a coding mentor at the Academy, Tyler “Ty” Lawrence helps students learn how to turn their ideas into code. His background in data science and analytics helps students understand how to make use of data throughout the app development process.
Prior to joining the Academy, Ty worked as a data scientist at Meijer and Bayer, where he used coding and statistics to help businesses make better, more informed decisions using data. His primary skills include data engineering, automation and analytics.
Ty got his master's degree in business analytics from Michigan State University. When not in the Academy, you can find Ty rock climbing, mountain biking, snowboarding, disc golfing, (anything outdoorsy), drinking a nice IPA with friends, or playing music on the piano or guitar.
They would say that I am good at listening and that I am patient, honest, humble and always willing to learn.
Have fun with it. This is a great opportunity to learn about coding and design, but there is also so much to learn from just being a part of the Academy and working with the people around you.
I have always had an interest in the tech field, and my grad school experience helped me get started in data science.
Before the Apple Developer Academy, I was a data scientist. Much of my time was spent building and maintaining statistical models.
I have always been interested in education, and the Apple Developer Academy is the perfect opportunity to share my knowledge of programming and statistics to help people learn. I am most excited to see the great ideas the students will bring to the Academy.
I am from Pinckney and currently live in Detroit.
