My story, now on BuzzFeed. So grateful that I get to have an impact on the next generation of technologists from diverse backgrounds all over the world.

That God would be so gracious to me by granting me this celebrated testimony is beyond my comprehension. Redeeming me, a sinner, through the sacrifice of Christ Jesus was more than I deserved. I glorify God by showing the world how He brought me from Compton to Google.

Excerpt from my latest piece, "Hacking the Hood: How Tech Can Solve Its Pipeline Problem." https://amays.me/hacking-the-hood

Where I come from, folks survive with minimal resources, persevere despite daunting adversity, bring a wealth of diverse viewpoints, and work incredibly hard. They have the grit to succeed even if their skills are, for the moment, lacking. I know plenty of people who are eager to learn how to code or work at a startup.

For better or for worse, I feel these are some of the same reasons why companies have sent jobs overseas. Yet, they have bypassed the incredible talent in their own backyards. Why can’t we have a tech boom born in America’s long neglected hoods and ghettos?

The #1 question people ask me is how they can get the attention of top companies like Google. The answer? Your resume. Read about the four questions your resume needs to answer if you want to get the job. "How To Craft A Solid Resume That Grabs The Attention Of Top Tech Companies."

I learned this lesson from +INROADS Inc​ back when I started as an intern. It is still the single most important one I learned during my season of training back in those early days.
