BOSTON - Christopher Wolfram, son of Mathematica creator Stephen Wolfram, will be broadcasting a special coding project on Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. EDT. This exclusive live coding stream will be hosted by Y Combinator backed startup LiveCoding.TV.
Christopher Wolfram is the second oldest of Stephen Wolfram’s four children. Though only 16 years old, Christopher’s aptitude for programming is bolstered by seven years experience. Like his father, Christopher has given many public demonstrations of the Wolfram Language. Notably, he programmed a quadricopter drone in front of a live audience, at only age 13 (Maker Faire in New York; https://youtu.be/eoXADAE67ig).
“One of the things I’ve always liked about programming is that there are few limitations on what you can build. With something like, say, carpentry, you are limited by all sorts of practical issues,” said Christopher. “I really started programming seriously when I started having ideas for software-related projects.”
