In spite of a perceived increase in accessibility to the means of coding, Meredydd Luff thinks there's a culture within code that's actually having the opposite effect. In the past, it was possible to stumble into programming sideways and still produce a useful artefact for an end user. Nowadays, there are so many pre-requisite languages, frameworks, and libraries that it actually prevents us from getting started and leaving some space in our brain to be creative.

To quote the software engineer Frederick P. Brooks, "The programmer, like the poet, works only slightly removed from pure thought-stuff. He builds his castles in the air, from air, creating by exertion of the imagination. Few media of creation are so flexible, so easy to polish and rework, so readily capable of realizing grand conceptual structures.”

At an early age, Davit Buniatyan was poised for a stellar career in academia. However, for some reason, he refused the call to jump into tech entrepreneurship after his PhD advisor at Princeton left to pursue a new calling. Eventually, Davit got the call to pursue his own startup idea as well. Check out David's story from the academy to the Valley.

ABOUT OUR GUEST
 
Before Davit Buniatyan started his PhD at Princeton at the age of 21, he was featured by TechCrunch at the age of 18. During his time at Princeton, he worked on a lot of fun stuff, such as making Alexa more human (which got him featured in CNet). Also, he reconstructed neurons inside mouse brains, which made him think of a radically more efficient way to handle data for machine learning. This idea got him into Y Combinator, where he started https://www.activeloop.ai/, a YC company.

Ngbede Alike came from humble beginnings before he attended university, studied chemical engineering, and eventually became a software engineer. However, he believes the problem with learning tech for people like him is not entirely a question of access. For him, much of it has to do with acquiring the right "mindset" to code.

When Chibuike Nwachukwu began his programming journey in college, it was really difficult for him to find his path. From his ever-changing interests to lack of mentorship and guidance, its a surprise he stayed focused. Now that he's matured, he sees to it that no junior coder he encounters has to go through the many avoidable hassles he went through.
