Today is my last day at Twilio. It has been humbling to serve the Twilio developer community for these past few years and work with a group of people who are not only setting the bar for Developer Evangelism but also creating a community and company of which we can all be proud. Twilio is going to change the world in many ways and I cannot wait to see what they create.

If working for a truly developer-focused company (including our live-coding CEO Jeffiel) or in the field of Developer Evangelism is of interest to you, I cannot recommend Twilio highly enough.

But it is time for me to move on. I am joining Major League Hacking as Swift’s co-founder because hackathons changed my life. They changed Swift’s life. And they change the lives of thousands of students each year.

Hackathons and hacker communities are driving a fundamental change in technology education where the value of being able to build has eclipsed the value of a degree that says you understand building.

We are building Major League Hacking to give every student in the world an opportunity to define his or her own future by building.

Happy Hacking,

Jon Gottfried
