He’s since built a variety of apps, games and hardware accessories for the iPhone. Ashu attended UCLA to study Computer Science before dropping out to join Y Combinator and found Make School. Software Developer and Entrepreneur Ashru Desai explains his frustration with traditional computer science and tech education and outlines his alternative education solution, "Make School", a program designed to nurture ideas and ingenuity without the rigid structure of a traditional university. This talk was filmed at TEDxSaratogaHighSchool, an independently organized TED event (April 15, 2016).
