Aug 04, 2020 Season 1 Episode 85
Jeremy Goldman

Tudor Gîrba is a software environmentalist and co-founder of feenk where he works with his team on Glamorous Toolkit, a novel IDE that enables moldable development. He has won the prestigious Dahl-Nygaard Junior Prize for his software engineering research, being the only non-university professor to ever receive that prize.

On this episode, we discuss the software environmentalism - what it is, and why we need to adjust the way we develop and maintain software. We also discuss how the software industry behaves more like the plastics industry thank you might expect, why we abandon successful technology and programming languages, and how the way that we shape tools - everything from spreadsheets to apps to devices - impacts how we use data and shape the future.
