Don’t let the title of professor fool you into thinking that Mike Litman is simply an educator. In addition, he’s also a software entrepreneur, former D1 tennis player, crypto and VR consultant, and competitive eater just to name a few of his other pursuits.
During today’s episode, Mike explains his unique method for teaching computer programming languages. “How do human beings solve problems? We remember stuff, we ask a lot of questions, and we do repetition.” Using this formula, he says it’s often achievable to learn additional languages in just one weekend since all languages operate on similar principles of communication.
Join the Jo Bros as they chat with Dr. Litman about how technology affects us now and will do so even more in the future. Topics include the world of competitive eating, how to problem solve across the board, what VR could mean for education, and how to identify new talent.
