Data-driven education - it's not what you think. How Khurram is using data-driven education to personalize learning. Khurram is the co-founder and Head of Education at Lighthouse Labs, where he has been disrupting the way people learn to code. After spending 10 years as a developer and entrepreneur, he saw a problematic divide in technology between the way people learn and the way they work. By founding Lighthouse Labs and The HTML500, Canada's largest coding bootcamp and learn-to-code event respectively, he brought tech best practices into education to empower 100's of people with today's most valuable career skills - and taught them faster than ever before. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
