As is descried in the “About” tab, my academic background is economics and development studies. I don’t know much about computer sciense, engineering, architecture and design. Plus I am already 60 years old. I will have tough time in working on the weekly assignments, group assignments, machine building and final project. Therefore, I will leave this document for the sake of me myself after the Fab Academy.
