Drag and Drop Programming

A visual programming proof of concept that I put together in a few days.

It was featured in this TED talk that Keller gave about Romo.

Users would create, upload, and save programs to send off to their Romo. This programming environment also provided an opportunity for users without Romos to still enjoy him.

Ultimately, we decided to go with on-device programming which is a major component of the current iOS app.

Hi, I'm Dominick.

I love to build, and I love to learn. I admire and aspire for simple, elegant, resourceful design.

I'm interested in building things that improve people's lives.

Currently, I study EECS at UC Berkeley.

Previously, I was a software engineer at Romotive.

Welcome to my humble node of the internet.

Long-form thoughts.

I'm working on a few rough drafts. When they're done, you can find them here.

Stuff I've made.

Each project gives me the opportunity to help others and explore new technologies.
