A Rogue is an independent person who rejects conventional rules of society in favor of following their own personal goals and values.
In modern English language, the term rogue is used pejoratively to describe a dishonest or unprincipled person whose behavior one disapproves of, but who is nonetheless likable and/or attractive.
Rogue Making was created by Tenaya Hurst out of demand for a local Bay Area maker teacher. Tenaya works full time for Arduino.org and Linino.org who make microcontrollers for the Internet of Things like Arduino Yun, Linino ONE, and Chiwawa. Rogue Making is her side passion because of her love for wearable technology and teaching. It's all related to the programming of microcontrollers because Arduino is really the beginning to all maker projects!
Tenaya has taught makers at the Tech Museum of Innovation, Camp Galileo Tech Summer Camps, Children's Creativity Museum, Silicon Valley Code Camp, Sunnyvale Public Library, Devoxx4Kids, San Mateo Public Library, Monterrey Public Library, New York Hall of Science, Staten Island Makerspace, Universidad of Galileo in Guatemala, and more! As Education Accounts Manager for Arduino.org and Linino.org, she attends conferences, makerfaires, museum events, and school makerspaces. She loves attending Maker Faire to meet makers and showcase the new microcontrollers with infinite possibilities and adaptability to preferred method of programming. For those who are not programmers, there are many languages that people get comfortable with or prefer for one reason or another. With Arduino Yun and Linino modules, you can use Arduino IDE, java, Node.js, LininoIO, as well as apps and other Alljoyn connections. Rogue Making is how Tenaya stays connected to the local communities.
