#ADA11 – Alicia Gibb – Formerly of BugLabs – Open Hardware Summit co-chair…

I work at Bug Labs in New York City. It is a start-up where we make a Linux-based, open source prototyping platform. I recently was awarded an NSF SBIR grant which is what I’m currently working on. I’ve published BUG-inspired papers at TEI and in Linux Journal. I also co-chair the Open Hardware Summit with Ayah Bdeir.

I attended Pratt Institute and graduated with my Masters of Science in Art History and a second Masters of Information & Library Science. My concentration for Art History is New Media Art, specifically flexible programming platforms in robotics and art. While in school, I curated two New Media Art show at NYCResistor, one called Art of the Game and one based on my thesis called Art, Design and the Arduino: A Lineage. In Information & Library Science, my interests were and in many ways still are user-centered design, and usability. Information Science led me to concepts such as source code and the Internet of Things.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
