102: Iheanyi Ekechukwu

We're taking a trip back down to Austin this week to talk with full-stack software engineer Iheanyi Ekechukwu. Iheanyi works at the IBM Watson Innovation Labs doing next-level work on cognitive computing systems that use data to enhance, scale, and accelerate human expertise. Pretty cool! We started off talking about tech -- what programming languages he's working with, what projects he's built, etc. -- but we quickly shifted to a pretty frank discussion on diversity in tech. From there, Iheanyi talked about some of his mentors, what motivates him, and about his own podcast Two Black Nerds. Iheanyi brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm not just to his work, but to the tech community as a whole. Watch out now!
