A Lesson from Thomas Suarez

Today’s youth have enough intelligence to change the face technology. They understand that our resources for information have surpassed previous decades and they are ready to take advantage of it! But what are ways that HTML coding and prototype creation can help our youth entertain an audience, but also turn them into highly profitable entrepreneurs? How are they going to learn what they need to “market” their ideas? How are they create lasting relationships to expand their knowledge?
