Abner Coimbre started Handmade Network when rallying the Handmade Hero community around a common goal.

2017 marked three years of work at Kennedy Space Center, writing launch control software. Abner was awarded Kennedy’s Intern of the Year by 2015 which lead him to NASA’s Pathways program, where he got tasked to research ways to simplify the debugging of (wait for it) flying space robots. The fruit of that work landed Abner on Kennedy’s 2016 Top 10 list of Innovators — though just barely!

Abner's vision is to see more programmers interested in expanding their computer literacy, and hopes Handmade Network becomes the online community to do so.
