Listen to Kean Walmsley — Fun, Freedom, Flexibility, and Family
· 1 hr 40 min
Autodesk's Kean Walmsley (@keanw) on prioritizing fun, freedom, and flexibility, traveling and working around the world with family, blogging, teaching, remote work, and the post-COVID world.
Kean Walmsley works at Autodesk Research, based in Neuchâtel, Switzerland.
Kean joined Autodesk in 1995 and has worked in a number of Autodesk offices around the world – in the UK, the US, India and Switzerland – and in a number of roles, both technical and management-focused. He spent several years working in the Autodesk Developer Network and four years as a Software Architect for the AutoCAD product line.
In 2006 Kean started his popular Through the Interface blog, through which he enjoys a regular dialog with software developers working with Autodesk technologies. He also uses the blog to share his research into how Autodesk technologies connect with emerging industry trends, such as reality capture, natural user interfaces, virtual reality, and the internet of things.
Kean holds a Masters degree in European Computer Science from the University of Kent at Canterbury, as well as a License d’Informatique from l'Université de Paris-Sud. Outside work – aside from spending time with his family – Kean tries hard to play sport on a daily basis, whether indoor hockey, football or (on winter weekends) snowboarding.
