The Open CEO: Stephen Wolfram and Transparent Software Design

CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Dec. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Stephen Wolfram, founder and CEO of Wolfram Research, invites the world to watch and participate in his life's work. To numerous talks where he's invited open Q&A throughout the years and, more recently, hosting Reddit AMAs, Stephen has now added a live and unscripted view into his world on the popular livestreaming website Twitch. So far, he's streamed 25 internal language design reviews and a number of side projects.

Particularly of interest to software developers, product managers, startup founders and programmers, these livestreams document processes and product design decisions in real time. Those who are interested in the decision-making process of developing software can witness a tech CEO name new programming functions, sketch graphics for the design team and deliberate courses of action—an unscripted form of software-design reality TV.

Democratizing access to human-machine interaction has been an ongoing goal of Wolfram Research in developing its technology stack. Opening up thedesign process, including interaction with livestream viewers, pushes this goal forward. This real-time feedback directly impacts the ideas that turn into products. It is also an educational experience for both viewers and Wolfram developers. The unique opportunity to learn from a pioneer in technical computing and software development is unparalleled.

The Wolfram Language is a symbolic programming language built atop the world's largest algorithmbase, which provides an efficient way for humans to communicate with machines that accelerates R&D, prototyping and application deployment. Users of the Wolfram tech stack now have the benefit of seeing design as it happens and engaging with the dedicated developers and engineers who ensure functions work exactly as they should.

Viewers can watch livestreams and videos on demand on Stephen Wolfram's Twitch channel at
