Matt Meyers

Greenwich High School
CS Program Writer
Greenwich, CT
Matt Meyers is the computer science program writer at Greenwich High School and the founder/president of Slate & Tablets. His work at GHS has seen computer programming grow from 0 student enrollment to 300 students in just 3 years. He's written these courses drawing directly from his experience with Slate & Tablets, an edtech company he founded with no programming experience. He taught himself how to code, developed applications to solve real problems he experienced in the classroom, and with some exposure, his products have now been used by over 150,000 students worldwide. The goal of these computer science courses are to teach students to do the same thing. This is Matt's first conference as a presenter, although he's pitched his company at many competitions and accelerators, including LearnLaunch, Challenge Cup, TechStars, and others. He's also led several presentations about the course in the Greenwich District.
