Warning:You’ll want to put this Rome native’s work in your pocket.
In a moment of complete serendipity, Kenslee and his family came to buy a spare desk from the 7hills Makerspace for his use as a budding programmer and app developer. We were thrilled to learn its purpose and immediately got hooked on his “Flappy Bird” knock-off. We love Kenslee’s approach: build up skills by tackling incrementally harder applications, and we can’t wait to see what he’ll create next.
Later that very night, we were able to connect Kenslee with our friend, Beth Wardlaw, who asked him to join the Darlington team responding to the Verizon App challenge. Here’s to serendipity, connections, and the future of Rome.
