Wylesha wrote her first line of code with custom Myspace pages for music artists while in college at LSU. Through ingenuity and a little reverse engineering, Wylesha taught herself the basic concepts of front-end development, and turned a profit in the process. It wasn’t until after she took her first Computer Science course her senior year, that she realized programming is what she wanted to do the rest of her life.
After graduating with a Bachelors in Business Management, Wylesha moved to Atlanta and immersed herself in Software Engineering. She is currently on the tech team as a Sr. Engineer for NBA.com at Turner Broadcasting.
