Thomas Tongue

Maker, Instructor, Serial Entrepreneur

Hi, I'm Tom. I've been a technology entrepreneur for the past 20 years since I left a graduate program in Astrophysics to co-found a company providing software and web services. Along the way, I've earned a MBA from the Lally School at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, built a company making spectrometers, and lead a community of makers and entrepreneurs to found the Tech Valley Center of Gravity (TVCOG), a makerspace and startup cultivator in the Capital District of NY.

Over the past few years I've shared my passion for rapid prototyping, electronics and software with students, engineers and entrepreneurs at the TVCOG, and now I want to share it with the world through Udemy! I can't wait to help you learn how to use microcontrollers to build devices for the Internet of Things!

See you soon!
