David Wolber is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of San Francisco. He is the author of App Inventor 2: Create your own Android apps along with Hal Abelson, Ellen Spertus and Liz Looney from the App Inventor team, and he runs appinventor.org which provides on-line, video-based teaching lessons.
David teaches App Inventor in his “Computing, Mobile Apps, and the Web” course at USF. The apps created by his students– mostly humanities and business majors with no prior programming experience–have been chronicled in Wired, New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Tech Crunch, Fortune.CNN.com, and Yahoo news.
David began teaching App Inventor as part of Google’s 2009 pilot program involving ten universities. He’s received grants from Google and the W.M. Keck Foundation to support his work and is part of an NSF grant on teaching computational thinking with App Inventor. David served part of his sabbatical at MIT in 2014 and has regularly contributed to the App Inventor project.
