Not exactly.. Normal; Bryan Ollendyke (CV) brings a unique mix of development and philosophy to seemingly mundane topics. A self coined Developer Activist, Bryan has been contributing code to open source efforts at the university and the larger open web since 2007. Founder of ELMS: Learning Network, HAX The Web, HAX camp events, 300+ of NPM packages, 100+ of Drupal modules, Bryan has an insatiable thirst to change academia and the world. Using the classroom as a vehicle to learn and transform, Bryan's IST 256, 402 and 210 classes give students the opportunity to learn about technology by contributing to open source projects used at Penn State and beyond, often directly impacting the courses being actively taught in IST through improvements in learning technologies.
