Prince

  • About

Howdy! I'm Maxcell Prince Wilson, but you can call me Prince. I am a person who cares about making better communities one step at a time. Whether it is through giving talks at meetups/conferences, or building and securing technology to make people's lives better.

I work as a software engineer at Newsela. I previously worked as a software engineer over at Flatiron School, powered by WeWork. I started off as an instructor there and helped over 400 folks transition into a career of technology! Some of my previous work includes working at Clarifai and State Farm Insurance.

I graduated with a Bachelors degree in Computer Science with a focus in security over at the University of Central Florida. Back in school, I founded our tech club with a bunch of my friends, known as Tech Knights. We also created our first intercollegiate hackathon known as Knight Hacks.

Now, I enjoy exploring New York City! I look for opportunities to give back to communities that helped me become who I am today, through mentorship and open source. But most of all, I really really love corgis.
