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 web projects, mobile apps & interactive installations.
Currently, he’s working on the Devine (Digital Design and Development) curriculum – a three-year creative bachelor course combining front-end development with design. In his classes, students learn the basics of programming and advance to larger, experimental projects with NodeJS, ObjectiveC, OpenFrameworks, and Arduino. Hands-on experience is very important and his students get a lot of practical lab sessions as well as real world projects.
