Do you know the next future technology influencer? If you live or work in Wilmington, DE odds are- you might! just released a list of the top eleven up-and-coming technologists in Delaware and over half of the list lives or works in Wilmington, DE. Four of the eight featured are graduates of Zip Code Wilmington, a nationally-recognized coding school in Wilmington, and one of the first nonprofit coding schools in the country.

Summarized from the full article of Delaware.

Topping the list is Jocelyn Harper, a software engineer at Capital One, the local chapter lead for Girl Develop It and a graduate of Zip Code Wilmington.

Harper is a software engineer at Capital One, the local chapter lead for Girl Develop It and a graduate of Zip Code Wilmington.

“I love being a software engineer, but because of that, I am hyper aware of the position that I have as a black woman in the tech space. I am vocal about diversity, inclusion, and the path to harmony between the two. The future of techs of color does not only rely on the underprivileged, but also with our counterparts in positions to acknowledge, speak up, and to stimulate sustainable change.”

Olatunji (Miracle’s sister) is the founder of the Student Leadership Initiative Program, a board member of GripTape, an emerging photographer and a junior at the Charter School of Wilmington.

“The world of tech has always been a marvel to me as a student; through this vastly expanding platform, I have interacted with photography, advocacy, education, and leadership. The ability to teach these skills and to continue to pass them along to other generations is what will further propel the field of technological innovation.”

Olatunji (Deborah’s sister) is the founder of a new carpooling app for high-school communities called A.C.T. (Actively Commuting Together). She’s currently a junior at the Charter School of Wilmington.

“I have drawn a lot of inspiration from the Wilmington tech community. I believe that experimental learning is very important, as well as networking and tapping into available resources, in every aspect of life. I aspire to call myself a developer in the next six months to a year.”

“I got into tech through a program called ITWorks, and I got into tech knowing that the future of tech is always evolving and soon technology will be helping the community in little things.”

Other notable people on the list are Markevis Gideon, the managing director of computer-repair service NERDiT NOW, Tennessee G. Gibbs II, and April Rivera a software developer for JPMorgan Chase in Wilmington. All of which are alumni of Zip Code Wilmington.
