Matt Brock

Software Developer

Like others at Level 12, I discovered a passion for programming in high school. I started with Java and soon after Android, which I clung to for the better part of 8 years. In the meantime I studied computer science at the University of Florida where I honed my skills and became acquainted with other languages and tools. I quickly developed a liking for Python and JavaScript, which is what eventually landed me at Level 12.

My main responsibilities include backend and frontend software development using Python and JavaScript.
