Morgan Laco


I'm a web developer; my tool of choice is Rails. I earned a B.S. in physics and math from Saint Vincent College and a M.S. in financial mathematics from University of Pittsburgh. In 2014, I was pursuing a Ph.D. in physics when I decided to drop out and take a chance with a career in programming.

I couldn't be more happy with my decision. I've loved programming since I was a kid; my dad taught me HTML, and I taught myself Q-Basic, which I used to make a game about ninjas.

I work at Code School maintaining our platform, and I've implemented challenges on several of our courses: Breaking the Ice with Regular Expressions, Try Python , and Flying Through Python .

I run panko.io, a site where people can practice speaking a foreign language with others.
