Chris Granger discusses the need for enhancing the learning tools starting from his own experience watching through a mirror people trying to solve problems at Microsoft.
Chris Granger started programming at the age of 10 and took his first paid dev gig at 17. Since then he’s built websites large and small, written frameworks and libraries used by thousands, taught developers around the world, and helped envision the future of development at Microsoft. He’s the co-founder of Kodowa, where they are building Light Table, a new vision for how we create and learn.
Strange Loop is a multi-disciplinary conference that aims to bring together the developers and thinkers building tomorrow's technology in fields such as emerging languages, alternative databases, concurrency, distributed systems, mobile development, and the web. Strange Loop was created in 2009 by software developer Alex Miller and is now run by a team of St. Louis-based friends and developers under Strange Loop LLC, a for-profit but not particularly profitable venture.
