Felienne is assistant professor at Delft University of Technology, in the Software Technology department where she researches programming education for elementary school children. What cognitive skills are needed for programming? What misconceptions can occur when children are learning to program? These are some of the questions that intrigue Felienne.
She runs the project for first year students, and has developed campuswide programming education at TU Delft. She is also one of the hosts of SE radio, one of the most popular software engineering podcasts on the web.
If she is not coding, blogging or teaching, she is probably dancing Lindy Hop, running or playing a (board)game.
