Two days ago we announced our next class of 7 teams, aka “WebFWD II”, and promised to let the founders share more about their businesses.
Today we are kicking off a series of 7 blog posts on our teams - featuring them in alphabetical order, starting with our first team:
“codebender is a web platform which aims to supercharge and expand the maker movement, by providing great tools for hackers, makers and artists, with an emphasis on Arduino development. Inspired by the passion and ideals of the open source the diy movements, and combining the two, the maker movement is a new but expanding movement with an emphasis on modification (hacking) of existing technologies and inventing new, interesting concepts.
