Open lecture with the Arduino co-founder Massimo Banzi - 8 June 2017
Arduino, open-sourcing imagination
Open lecture with Massimo Banzi, co-founder of Arduino, the company that invented the mini open-source hardware and revolutionized the world of computers.
8 June 2017, 17:30-18:30, Room D1.02, Free University of Bozen-Bolzanohttp://unibz.us12.list-manage.com/track/click?u=bfd0587fccb462dde4bbc232d&id=5adfabc6e5&e=21ad5f28fe
During his open lesson Massimo Banzi will illustrate the stages of his professional story and of the parallel story of Arduino, and will discuss some of the most recent projects of the company he founded. In particular, he will deal with the topic of the Internet of Things, one of the new frontiers of technology. The Internet of Things includes those items, such as a fridge or a pair of sneakers, which are able to collect data about their operation and, by connecting to the Net, to send them to other objects or devices for a better user experience. Banzi will explain the philosophical premises that, in his opinion, should be the basis of the process of designing objects connected to the internet: this process should be 'good, clean and fair', and the connected devices should be open source, reusable, accessible, and user-centered.
"Over the years, Arduino has been the engine of thousands of projects, with all kinds of applications and users, from prototypes developed by high school students to major industrial applications. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to hear directly from one of its creators how this reality, which has won over the world market of makers, was born and gained strength", -- Barbara Russo, Organizer and Professor of Software Engineering at the Faculty of Computer Science
