He also has deep interest in artificial intelligence and in working with complex data.


YOW!Tube with Felienne Hermans

Aino chats with Felienne about her upcoming book "The Programmers' Brain: What Every Programmer Should Know About Cognition".

It's a fascinating topic. What are our brains doing when we process code and read natural languages? How do we make sense of someone else's code, and how can we get better at both reading and writing code?

YOW!Tube with Jennifer Scheurle

In this interview, Aino asks Jennifer about the games industry - pathways to get in, leadership, career path, and of course diversity or lack thereof. They also discuss teaching and how games can be used in that context, even within NASA! And it seems they are scheming to create a hybrid conference where games and tech developers can learn from each other...

YOW!Tube with Kevlin Henney

In this episode, Aino Corry from YOW! sat down to chat with Kevlin Henney about his latest book, “97 Things Every Java Programmer Should Know”. You might be surprised to learn that the Things Every Java Programmer Should Know are not limited to wrangling java.util.Date or garbage collection, but extend to the sociotechnical aspects of how to interact with your community, and even how to ace an interview. Watch this interview to learn more about Java, full-stack development, Jane Austen and the Missing 98th Thing.
