I am a Technical Communicator with the Embedded Targets team at MathWorks. I work with Simulink, Simulink Coder, and Embedded Coder. I also work with educational targets in Simulink, which you can use to run models on Arduino, LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT, BeagleBoard, and PandaBoard hardware.

The advice and opinions I post here are my own, not those of MathWorks.
