Hi there! I am Felienne. Since 2013 I am assistant professor at Delft University of Technology, where I research end-user programming. End-user programming is programming for everyone that does think of themselves as a programmer. In my PhD dissertation I worked on applying methods from software engineering to spreadsheets. During my PhD I founded a company called Infotron, based on the tools and techniques for spreadsheet analysis I developed. Recently, I have also worked on software engineering for kids (link in Dutch). I am regularly asked to speak about my research on conferences. Me, my research and my company have gotten some media coverage over the last years. I have some programming related hobbies too :) I teach a bunch of kids programming every Saturday in a local community center. I am in the board of Devnology, a Dutch developer community. I am also one of the people behind Joy of Coding conference, a one day developer conference in Rotterdam.
Aaaaand… Another review of course. Here is the original post. Luke is going to review this. Will be a really though nut to crack. An overarching narrative is usually: problem – gets worse – solution – happiness. But not all stories are equally good. What are the stories we want to tell each other? Stories Read more about From Software Creationism to Software Evolutionism — Luke Church[…]
Everyone loves stories! There are different stories, and one very popular story form are original stories, especially stories about the origin of the world, which often also contain a theodicy: a trial of god: why is there evil in the world? Logogony (a word that François-René invented) is the origin story of software, and Antropodicy (also invented) Read more about From Software Creationism to Software Evolutionism — François-René Rideau[…]
Now, as common at Salon des Refuses, a review of Programming Languages in Science. Antranig want to deepen the definition of a knowledge discovery moment. These of course are messy and different. According to Kuhn there are two models: the crosswords model, where you apply a well understood solution model to a problem, but also the Read more about Programming Languages in Science – Antranig Basman[…]
Programming languages are used in a number of different ways by scientists, and in this talk we will look at how they are used to reach “eureka” moments (discovery moments). Calculation devices One of the uses is as a calculation device. Not a calculator perse but a machine to automate steps or to do batch Read more about Programming Languages in Science – Javier Burroni[…]
In the Salon des Refuses workshop, programming committee members perform an oral review of each paper! Mine is up first, by Tomas Petricek. He has two thoughts about our paper on writing and programming. Formatting in programming and writing Here is Mario, from The International Obfuscated C Code Contest And this can also be done in writing!
