Dr Sam Aaron: Algorithm Raver

By day, Sam Aaron is a mild-mannered Research Associate at the Cambridge University Digital Technology Group. By night, he’s a live code raver and musician.

Sam considers programming as performance and strongly believes in the importance of celebrating creativity within all aspects of programming. He is also the lead developer of Overtone and Quil, both very powerful live coding platforms and the creator of sonic Pi which is used to teach programming to young people and children. Sam’s talk and performance will be a compelling display of what happens when you mash up passion, creativity and code.
