Dr. Andrew Robinson
Andrew is the project leader for CodeBug and Honorary Research Fellow of the University of Manchester, where previously he completed his PhD in low power embedded processors. Andrew can trace his enthusiasm for electronics and computers back to building a working model lighthouse aged 5.
Thomas, the CodeBug board engineer, is always tinkering with design. After gaining experience with PCB design in helping to create PiFace and Microstack product ranges, designing the board for CodeBug proved a far more involved challenge. After many iterations, CodeBug’s cute iconic form was born, and it’s huge array of features were squeezed onto the pocketable board.
Thomas writes the software which makes the board tick! As an open source enthusiast he has years of experience writing code on a range of projects but this has been his biggest challenge yet. From CodeBug’s drag and drop blocks to making the LEDs shine, his work is at every stage of CodeBug’s software stack.
