Podcast Description

“There’s a term in computer science that I’ve become fond of, the idea of a naive solution. It’s a solution that appears to be correct at first glance. But if you dig in a little deeper you realize, ya know what – this is not really the way to go.”

Kojo Idrissa *was* an accountant who got an MBA and taught at university in two different countries. He’s *now* a  software engineer, intercontinental tech conference speaker, DjangoCon US organizer and the DEFNA North American Ambassador #NorAmGT. He’s spoken at tech conferences about software engineering practices, spreadsheets, contributing to tech communities, Dungeons & Dragons, inclusion, and privilege.
