About

Raspberry Pi

I’m a tenured Associate Professor of Information Technology and Management at Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago.

I am writing a book about WebRTC titled Programming WebRTC: Build Real-Time Streaming Applications for the Web, now in beta with Pragmatic Programmers.

I study the open standards and open-source technologies that support web development. My professional work is invested in securing the web’s future as a more humane open platform. To that end, I research, practice, and promote ethical, iterative web development techniques that help make the web and its content universally accessible to all.

Latest Book

Programming WebRTC cover.

Programming WebRTC: Build Real-Time Streaming Applications for the Web (Pragmatic Programmers, 2022). Build your own video chat application—but that’s just the beginning. With WebRTC, you’ll create real-time applications to stream any kind of user media and data directly from one browser to another, all built on familiar HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Power real-time activities like text-based chats, secure peer-to-peer file transfers, collaborative brainstorming sessions—even multiplayer gaming. And you’re not limited to two connected users: an entire chapter of the book is devoted to engineering multipeer WebRTC apps that let groups of people communicate in real time. You’ll create your own video conferencing app. It’s all here.

Spring 2022 Courses

I teach courses on web design and development, including a two-course sequence in web development and web design that is part of the core undergraduate curriculum in Information Technology and Management. I have also been teaching a course on WebRTC, which I offered most recently in Fall 2021.
