Zahraa Khalil is an engineering instructor and educator.
Zahraa is passionate about STEM education—a keen interest that is reflected in her work as an electrical engineering instructor. In addition to her work in higher education, she is currently the IEEE WIE (Women in Engineering) Canada central area chair for 2019. In addition, she volunteers as education chapter membership development lead for IEEE WIE. She is an advocate for and volunteer at education programs which improve the entry and retention of women in engineering programs.
Barron Stone is an electrical engineer experienced in both low-level digital hardware and high-level software.
He earned his bachelor of science in electrical engineering from Rice University and his master of science in electrical engineering from the Air Force Institute of Technology. He spent several years as an applications engineer and product-marketing engineer at National Instruments, where he developed marketing and training content for the FPGA-based NI FlexRIO modular instruments. Today, Barron is serving as an officer in the United States Air Force.
Rae Hoyt is a creative soul with a technical mind.
With her bachelor of fine arts in digital media arts, she aims to unite art and technology. From programming and circuit hacking to creating physical forms, Rae lives for innovation. In her professional life, she is a lead content producer for LinkedIn Learning and Lynda.com, working with instructors to craft networking, data privacy, and security courses. In the evenings, you might find her working on her cars and motorcycles, sewing a new outfit, or learning a fresh piece of technology. Simply put, Rae loves using her hands, exploring the world, and solving problems.
Dan Gookin is the author of more than 120 titles. He has been writing about technology for over 20 years.
Dan combines his love of writing with his gizmo fascination to create books that are informative, entertaining, and not boring. Because his 120 titles have 12 million copies in print that have been translated into over 30 languages, Dan can attest that his method of crafting computer tomes seems to work.
Perhaps his most famous title is the original DOS For Dummies, published in 1991. It became the world's fastest-selling computer book, at one time moving more copies per week than the New York Times #1 bestseller (though as a reference, it could not be listed on the NYT Bestseller list). From that book spawned the entire line of For Dummies books, which remains a publishing phenomena to this day.
Dan's most popular titles include PCs For Dummies, Word For Dummies, Laptops For Dummies, and Droid X For Dummies. He also maintains the vast and helpful website, www.wambooli.com.
Dan holds a degree in communications/visual arts from the University of California, San Diego. Presently, he lives in the Pacific Northwest, where he enjoys spending time with his sons playing video games inside while they watch the gentle woods of Idaho.
Eduardo Corpeño has been an electrical engineer, computer programmer, and teacher for over 15 years.
Eduardo is a proud graduate of the Online Master of Science in Computer Science program from Georgia Tech. He has published over 20 online courses on topics such as microcontrollers, embedded systems, and solving engineering problems. At Galileo University, Guatemala City, he teaches a variety of subjects, including electrical circuit theory, computer architecture, microcontrollers, and printed circuit board design. Along with some colleagues, Eduardo created one of the first MOOCs in Spanish in 2013—an introduction to the Raspberry Pi— and later translated to Spanish "The RISC-V Reader: An Open Architecture Atlas" by Turing Award laureate David Patterson and Andrew Waterman.
Robert Gallup is a technologist, designer, maker, and speaker.
Robert thrives at the nexus of people, technology, and design. He engages with early-stage entrepreneurial projects, exploring innovative approaches and new technologies. His experience has ranged from managing game development teams to developing connected products. Currently, Robert makes things and consults in strategic communication, prototyping, and design. As an educator and speaker, he also creates and leads skill- and team-building workshops exploring Arduino and maker technology.
Marc de Vinck is the founder of Blown Fuse Labs LLC, an integrated product development and consulting company.
Marc is also a professor at Lehigh University, where he codeveloped and teaches in the Master of Engineering in Technical Entrepreneurship program. In addition to his nearly 10 years at Lehigh, he has spoken at dozens of conferences and events throughout the country about product design, creativity, and experiential learning. Previously, he served as the director of product development at Make: magazine. Marc is also the author of several books, including Getting Started with Soldering; dozens of magazine articles; and hundreds of educational videos on prototyping with electronics.
