Leonard

Leonard is working towards a Bachelor of Engineering with honours majoring in Software Engineering at Victoria University. Leonard’s interest in coding began after first being introduced to this digital world during his Year 11 year at school, shortly after first arriving in New Zealand. His new passion inspired him to enter a Python course in Year 12 and continued to grow from there. Leonard is keen to introduce others to the world of coding, using the knowledge he has gained from his studies.
