Felienne Hermans is assistant professor at Delft University of Technology, where she researches on end-user programming. End-user programming is programming for everyone that does think of themselves as a programmer. In my PhD dissertation she worked on applying methods from software engineering to spreadsheets.
During her PhD, she founded a company called Infotron, which sells a tool called PerfectXL based on techniques developed to spot errors in spreadsheets. Her research and her company have gotten some media coverage over the last years.
One of her biggest passions in life is to share her enthusiasm for programming/tech with others. She teaches a bunch of kids LEGO Mindstorms programming every Saturday in a local community center. Furthermore, Felienne is one of the founders of the Joy of Coding conference, a one day developer conference in Rotterdam and one of the hosts of the Software Engineering Radio podcast, one of the biggest software podcasts on the web.
When she is not coding, blogging or teaching, she is probably dancing Lindy Hop with my beau Rico, out running, watching a movie or playing a (board)game.
