David Wolber is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of San Francisco. David teaches App Inventor in his “Computing, Robots, 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 App Inventor articles of the New York Times, Tech Crunch, Fortune.CNN.com, and Yahoo news.
David began working with App Inventor as part of Google’s pilot program for exploring the use of App Inventor in college courses. He has received a grant from Google to work with the App Inventor team and he is the author of the advanced tutorials that appear on the App Inventor site.
David also teaches App Engine in his “Introduction to Computer Science” course at USF. Because of the power of Python and App Engine, his students are able to create dynamic web pages in their first semester of programming.
