Tom Cooper started his career in technology as a geek. He has a degree in computer science and for almost a decade ran Linux at home for all of his computing needs. He spent more than 20 years in technology, leading teams in building solutions for companies from startups to Fortune 500. He watched many projects and teams struggle and fail, so he set out to find out why. Along that journey he became an expert in how people work, and today wants to share some ideas about how to influence others with all of us.
With open source hardware and a little bit of programming skill the sky is the limit on making your own cool Tech toys, tools or even do rapid prototyping of the next big thing!
