Vikram Chandra: The Art of Coding

  • Town Hall 1119 Eighth Avenue Seattle, WA 98101 USA (map)

Exploring the intersection of art and technology in the modern age, award-winning author Vikram Chandra’s first work of nonfiction analyzes the relationship that exists between literature and coding. In Geek Sublime: The Beauty of Code, the Code of Beauty, he gives insight into the two fields he loves most, including known stereotypes like Silicon Valley’s “Indian Mafia” and the “generalized misogyny” of modern coding culture, as well as his personal experiences in the field. According to Chandra, “Code moves. It changes the world” — but so do literature and art. He’ll also explain why, in order for the science to be recognized as a beautiful artform, “programmers need to claim the extraordinary nature of what they do.” Chandra is also the author of Sacred Games and Mirrored Mind.
