Michael Ball

from UC Berkeley

I'm currently a Lecturer at UC Berkeley, developer on the Snap!, Snap!Con and BJC Teams.

Jadga works on Snap! and loves to create fun projects that might also be helpful for students and teachers. Her favourite Snap! block is map <3

The Snap! team will share their perspectives on what we think is a possibility for the future.

We make no promises about what we'll build about when or how we'll build features, but we'll share the why behind decision making. And of course we'll have plenty of time for Q&A!
