Felienne is the creator of Hedy, an open-source and free platform that helps kids aged 10 and above learn textual programming in multiple languages. The platform has about 500K users a month, has been translated into 49 languages, including Chinese, Arabic, and Spanish, and has 400+ volunteer programmers, translators, and teachers who continuously improve and maintain it. To teach a child programming, a parent or teacher can use Hedy’s built-in lesson plans or customize their kid’s learning experience by authoring their own lessons and loading these into Hedy’s user interface.

Felienne holds a Ph.D. in Software Engineering and, for 10+ years, has been a strong advocate for finding better ways of teaching programming and guiding the young generation early into the programming world. She is also a professor of computer science education at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in the Netherlands and a high-school computer science teacher one day a week at Lyceum Kralingen in the Codasium program, which teaches kids to code. https://podopshost.com/yayadiamond
