Today I had the pleasure of attending David Cuartielles thesis defence at Malmö University. …or at least the tail end of it! David is one of the founders of #Arduino, the microcontroller platform that over the last 10+ years has revolutionized hardware creation, making it accessible to millions. At RISE Interactive we would hardly be able to work as we do without the ecosystem and culture it has created!

Arduino is now more relevant than ever as lots of kids start meeting IT as a creative material from the earliest school years, and Arduino-compatibles such as the BBC micro:bit get handed out as standard course material in more and more countries around the world.
