The Udacity Self-Driving Car Team

Over the entire nine month course of the Udacity Self-Driving Car Engineer Nanodegree, only a fraction of the people behind the program ever appear on camera.

There’s myself, of course, and my colleague Ryan Keenan, who taught a number of lessons. A few of my colleagues like Sebastian and Andrew Paster and Andy Brown and Aaron Brown (not related) appear for short cameos.

But there is a small army of colleagues behind the scenes who make everything work. The photo collage above doesn’t even capture everybody.

Here are a few photos I captured recently of the people who make the program happen.
