Being part of the Discovery Program at Spring Valley gave David the courage to start designing, coding, and putting his imagination into a tangible form. To learn programming, he watched online video lectures from Stanford University about iPhone application development. As with creating anything from the ground up, David hit a few snags along the way. Perseverance and determination enabled him to succeed. David is currently working on adding new features and gradually improving the game, which will become apparent in future updates.
"Though learning programming and creating Meteor Pong was very difficult, I am a firm advocate of the idea that if you can dream it, you can achieve it," David said. "As Henry Ford said, 'whether you think you can or whether you think you can't, you're right.' It's simply a matter of going out and getting it."
In the Fall David will be pursuing a B.S. in Computer Science at the University of South Carolina.
