About Me

Hi, my name is Sam Meech-Ward, I make things with code and I teach other people how to do the same. I am currently a web instructor at BCIT. Before that, I used to spend most of my professional time instructing, mentoring, and developing curriculums for the iOS and Web programs at Lighthouse Labs, a software development Bootcamp based in Vancouver, BC.

I started developing iOS apps 10 years ago when 3G was so new and cool that Apple named their 3rd iPhone after it. In that time, I have also obtained a degree in web design and development, I have worked as an iOS and Web developer, I’ve taught people how to program, and so much more.
