  • What a great video! In preparation for spreading the word about DfA last week at the University of Oregon, I familiarized myself with all of these projects that DfA has been working on and taking to contests and actual users- Seeing this video has put faces to ideas and shown me the passions of the people involved at DfA! Great job compiling the variety of projects, and conveying the importance of each one. SO EXCITING!!
