Programming Bootcamp Turns Lawyer Into Hacker
Felix Tsai was as far from a hacker as you could get. He was a lawyer.
In the mid ’90s, he practiced corporate law for a firm in Manhattan. During the dot-com boom he did mergers and acquisitions. But he never loved his work. After quitting law and starting a pair of tech-minded companies in the San Francisco Bay Area, he realized that what he really wanted to be was a programmer. So he went to bootcamp. And now he is.
