Jacob Relkin was Newton Academy’s first graduate.
As the course progressed, he developed an intense
passion for iOS development. His apprenticeship app,
Spring Cleaning, was selected by Apple to be featured
in the New & Noteworthy category of the App Store.
Today he is a Newton Academy student mentor and
curriculum consultant. He is also Lead iOS Developer
for Doximity, a venture capital funded startup company.
Avi Mandelbaum grew up
in Brooklyn. While working on his bachelor’s degree,
he discovered Newton Academy, switched gears, and
signed up. Avi began with absolutely no programming
knowledge. After a few months he was at the head
of the class, writing code like a native. During the
course, Avi was a major contributor to EasyCraig,
the world's best app for searching Craigslist. After
graduating, together with fellow student Eliezer Liebman,
he founded LM Mobile, a contract development
firm specializing in apps for the retail sector.
Eliezer Liebman hails from
Rockland County, NY. Knowing nothing at all about
programming, but excited about the potential of Apple's
iPhone and the iOS platform, he signed up at Newton Academy.
Together with fellow student Avi Mandelbaum,
he created EasyCraig, the world's best app for searching
Craigslist. Also in partnership with Avi,
Eliezer founded LM Mobile, a freelance iOS development shop.
Shimon Hochman lives in Brooklyn, NY with his wife and children. Shimi
joined Newton Academy with some experience writing Microsoft Excel macros,
but limitied actual programming know-how. Shimi's dilligence in studying
the iOS frameworks was amazing. Shimi is the creator of Spindial,
the easiest and fastest way to call, text, and email your contacts.
Today Shimi is a successful independent app developer.
