Explaining software development to a class of 6-year olds

Posted on 17 Nov 2021 by Hanno Embregts teaching software-development

My daughter is 6 years old, and she and her classmates are currently learning about various professions. Her teacher asked the kids’ parents whether they would want come into the classroom and explain their profession in 15 minutes or so. I really liked the idea of inspiring these bright young minds with some fun stories about software development, so I applied and prepared a lesson. Which turned out to be a lot harder than I thought it would be.

Congratulations Java, and many happy returns!

Today is Java’s 25th birthday! On the 23rd of May 1995 the language was introduced at the SunWorld conference, in a time where desktop applications reigned supreme and the internet was still in its infancy.

Ethics in Software Development

Posted on 10 Jan 2019 by Hanno Embregts ethics engineering-culture software-development

I was interviewed by Peter Kofler on ethics in software development. He asked me some questions and I answered them as follows. A bit of it is about politics, another bit is about religion, but it is mainly about being a responsible software developer. So this time I mixed my personal and professional opinions. Still, I hope it makes for an interesting read!
