This is another episode in our series of interviews with technical startups, this time featuring an interview with Guntur Sandino, founder and CEO of CleVR. This company is building VRET (Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy) systems, which are used to help people deal with anxieties such as fear of flying, fear of heights or claustrophobia or psychotic disorders, such as paranoia.
We talk about some of the technical details of building these systems, and about the business challenges involved in creating a company around the developed products.
This interview was recorded on the 18th of Dec 2012 at Yes!Delft.
This month we bring you an interview with Gojko Adzic.
Gojko is a frequent speaker at leading software development and testing conferences and runs the UK agile testing user group. Over the last eleven years, he has worked as a developer, architect, technical director and consultant on projects delivering equity and energy trading, mobile positioning, e-commerce, online gaming and complex configuration management.
He is the author of several books and articles. In 2012 his book Specification by Example received the Jolt award.
To celebrate the Jolt Award, the publisher of Spec by Example is offering our podcast listeners a 37% discount on Specification by Example.
Note that Goiko has recently published a new book Impact Mapping: Making a big impact with software products and projects, which we did not get around to discussing in this interview.
This episode features an interview with Michael Feathers, regular conference speaker, author of Working Effectively with Legacy Code and one of the deep thinkers on programming.
We talk about various programming approaches and techniques and the effect they have on the way we create and maintain software systems. We touch upon subjects like functional programming, technical debt and computer science papers.
Also listen to this episode to learn about his plans for a new book!
In this episode we talk with Philippe Kruchten about architecture and software development processes like Rup and Agile. Philippe discusses what he calls the Elephants in the Agile room, and we also discuss his take on academic research on software engineering. We talk about cognitive biases and reasoning fallacies.
Be sure to listen to the full episode - as Philippe explains: context is king! :)
This interview was recorded on the 13th of august 2012 at the Vrije Universiteit(VU) in Amsterdam.
