What is this??



While at CodeMash, Carl and Richard collected some great stories. First up is Evan Hauck, who digs into CUDAfy, a library on Codeplex that allows you to run C# code (any IL code actually) on your GPU. The second story is about Jessie Shternshus and her company The Improv Effect. Jessie talks about how she uses improv to help teams work together more effectively. Another awesome CodeMash!

Evan Hauck is a high school junior who has been spending half his high school day at the Math & Science Center at Andrews University. Evan is an accomplished C# and GPU programmer who is at ease with all things parallel. Evan won an Intel Excellence in Computer Science Award in 2011 for his work in recreating the experiments of Comte de Buffon, and claimed 1st place with his teammates in the National Institute of Aerospace’s NASA Engineering Design Challenge in 2012.

As the founder and owner of The IMPROV EFFECT, Jessie weds her lifelong passion for and expertise in applied improvisation with the fast paced demands of the corporate world. In her classes and workshops she helps people become better listeners, team players, leaders, and communicators. Her physically engaging and playful workshops are relevant to all fields of life; participants of her workshops vary from college professors to engineers and from web developers to lawyers. Jessie gained her formal education at USF and NYU. Throughout her career she has worked with Fortune 500 companies and companies such as CBS, Paramount Pictures, MTV and Sesame Workshop. She also facilitates communication skills workshops and speaks at conferences worldwide.
