PopFly Goes To College

Bentley-Popfly-logo-template

I recently interviewed Professor Mark Frydenberg of Bentley College of Massachusetts. Professor Frydenberg has created a course that leverages PopFly to teach software architecture and development to his business major students. Professor Frydenberg's unique approach allows students to grasp complex distributed computing concepts, build and share sophisticated mashups while working with information (photos, news, music) that is relevant to them.
