Felienne is assistant professor at Delft University of Technology. In 2013, she defended her PhD thesis ‘Analyzing and Visualizing Spreadsheets’, after which she remained in Delft to continue working on the application of software engineering methods to spreadsheets, assisted by an STW Open Competition grant.
During her PhD she founded a company called Infotron, which brings her spreadsheet quality analysis tools to the market, currently serving customers including KLM Air France and Robeco.
One of Felienne’s biggest passions in life is to share enthusiasm for programming with others. She teaches a bunch of kids LEGO Mindstorms programming every Saturday in a local community center and is one of the founders of the Joy of Coding conference, a one day developer conference in Rotterdam, celebrating the love for programming.
Most programmer teach, whether they like it or not. Teaching their kids programming, teaching junior developers about their code base, teaching themselves about new frameworks. And yet most developers know little about teaching. How do people learn? How to best teach? This keynote will help you be a better teacher and learner.Slides
