Homeless man launches smart phone aplication

Leo Grand, a 37 year old homeless man was given the chance to either get 100 dollars or to learn how to code. He made the wise choice and learnt how to code and now he is the proud creator of a mobile app.

How was this possible? Thanks to Patrick McConlogue, a programmer who passed by Leo Grand everyday for a few months until he decided to to something about it. So he offered the man 100 dollars or the opportunity for him to learns coding. The man accepted and in a few months of learning Leo has developed an app which went on sale for 99 cents. The app helps drivers and people who need cars to get together and trave together, with the purpose of saving money and reducing pollution.  All money received from this app will go towards Leo’s education.
