David Brenner is CTO of thimble.io, an electronics kit subscription company. From a young age, he tinkered with electronics and computers. He helped found thimble.io to share this passion and inspire others to build with electronics. He is currently completing his graduate degree in computer engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology. Previously, he worked for AMD doing pre-silicon verification of the floating point unit of a low-power x86 processor, at Intel on the platform architecture team evaluating system-on-chip tools to enable Intel Atom-powered cellphones and tablets, and at IBM on the system ASICs verification team on a RAID controller for System Z mainframes.
