His demonstrations were absolutely fascinating, and his radically different approach to programming is great. Features like viewing the output in real-time, timeshiftin the instances of animation, sliding numerical values and more were revolutionary.

My jaw dropeed multiple times during his presentation, and I’m sure I wasn’t the only one. He later even gave advice on my Arduino project which was great. All in all, I am grateful to have interacted with a person like him, and I will never forget it.
