Update

David was CEO of Udacity from founding in June 2011 through May 2012 and President until April 2013. As CEO, he built the team to 30 employees, enrolled the first 250,000 students in 195+ countries, and launched the first 12 classes, the first jobs program for MOOC graduates, and the first certified exams for MOOCs in partnership with Pearson VUE.

At Stanford, he co-founded the robotic car team that won the 2005 DARPA Grand Challenge -- which later became the Google Car -- and received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Sebastian Thrun. He also raised the first $100K in funding and recruited the founding team for WiFi SLAM, which was acquired by Apple.
