Presenter

Hayley van Waas

Since discovering her passion for programming only a few years ago, Hayley’s goal has been to expose as many high school students to computer science as possible. As Gather’s newest recruit, she is already enjoying mentoring and presenting workshops as she has particular interest in Python.

“It was cool because we got to learn about making websites and the mentors were just awesome. It was complicated at first but then I got the hang of it and managed to catch up.”
