Daniel Satcher on Enabling IoT Development

Enabling Internet of Things (IoT) development for non-experts and end-users is the impetus behind Daniel Satcher’s research. This effort is part of a series of projects involving TILES, an IoT toolkit that provides a common set of hardware components, application infrastructures, and interaction primitives (how users tangibly interact with the TILES hardware) in order to Read more about Daniel Satcher on Enabling IoT Development[…]

Sarah Serussi about girls and programming

Sarah Serussi is writing her specialization project about girls’ views on programming and technology.
