On April 10th, 2015, I was fortunate to travel from Hillsboro, Oregon to San Francisco, California especially to take part in the International NASA Space App Challenge hosted at Constant Contact. The challenge was held for two days in 133 cities around the world focusing on 4 themes: Earth, outer space, humans, and robotics.
A few months ago, I decided to pursue a new career path. After spending years in graduate school specializing in energy-efficiency of mobile platforms and being a developer in the same field, I felt it was time for change. So, I joined the Internet of Things (IoT) Community Evangelism team at Intel Corporation where I introduce Intel technologies and provide technical support during Intel supported IoT hackathons.
