The Hi-Tech Teens of Silicon Valley

In the world of Silicon Valley, the talent is getting younger and younger. College dropouts have joined the ranks of tech companies for years, but now high school dropouts are calling the valley home. These are kids who were skipping school anyway to attend hack-a-thons; and kids who’ve already made apps on top ten most-downloaded lists. Bored with regular teenage life, they are headed to Silicon Valley to work in the tech sector. Tech journalist Nellie Bowles wrote about them in “Real Teens of Silicon Valley,” an article for the California Sunday Magazine.
