Give him bread, and you'll feed him for a day. Teach him to fish, and you'll feed him for a lifetime. This was Patrick McConlogue's philosophy, a belief that compelled him to help a homeless man named Leo to code.
It happened in August, and Leo is now on the point of launch a mobile app called Go Green. The said app, although yet to be detailed, is said to promote environmental awareness among users. Leo hopes to earn a small amount of money from the app once it is out.
McConlogue would then meet Leo every day for the coding sessions. "He told me I could have a laptop and learn how to do something and I figured it could turn into something more. It’s not like I don’t have the time to learn to do it," he said. McConlogue has started a Facebook page for Leo, detailing his journey.
