In this new d.school pop-up class, we’ll use Noam, a new software prototyping platform, to power a design thinking-focused exploration of the process of integrated hardware and software prototyping. Together we’ll learn how to create awesome hardware-software prototypes, and ship some cool stuff!

Noam is a new tool built by designers at IDEO. Their point of view was to create versatile, powerful, simple, and flexible messaging platform to break down the barriers between existing prototyping platforms such as Arduino, Processing, Open Frameworks, Qt/QML, and JavaScript. The class will be powered by an alpha release of Noam, a key enabler of understanding and iterating on a prototype concept.  You’ll be among the first people in the world to be hacking on the platform.

If you’ve ever imagined prototyping a design challenge bigger than can be contained within a single tool, a system that requires communication and coordination between tools, or a data-driven system prototype, this class is for you! This class is open to anyone who’s interested in learning about cutting-edge prototyping techniques—you don’t need to be a CS major to participate!
