In TechCast 85, we talk to Tom Igoe, one of Philly ETE’s 2015 Keynoters. Tom is an associate arts professor at NYU in their Interactive Telecommunications Program, and talks to us about the program itself, physical computing, and the Arduino, a board that he was instrumental in getting founded back in 2005.
Tom will be a keynote speaker at Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise. Learn more about this developer-friendly, Chariot-sponsored conference here.
