Wouter Verweirder is a faculty member of the Technical University of West-Flanders (HOWEST), where he teaches multimedia and web development. He is also owner of a company called “Happy Banana,” where he works on award-winning Flash platform projects.
Currently, he’s working on the Devine (Digital Design and Development) curriculum, a three-year creative bachelor course combining front- end development with design. Wouter makes sure the development track is up-to-date.
In his classes, students learn the basics of programming with Actionscript then advance to larger, experimental projects with Adobe AIR, ObjectiveC, OpenFrameworks, Arduino, … Hands-on experience is very important and his students get a lot of practical lab sessions as well as real world projects.
He is one of the core-programmers of the as3nui team (http://www.as3nui.com), who create the AIRKinect native extension, which allows you to use the Kinect camera directly in your AIR applications.
