Vikram Chandra: Geek Sublime

Pier 2/3 The Loft, Pier 2/3, Hickson Road, Walsh Bay

Event type: Conversation

Vikram Chandra is the award-winning author of two novels and a collection of short stories – and has been a computer programmer for almost as long as he has been a writer. Vikram’s most recent work, Geek Sublime, looks at his twin obsessions: writing and coding. Coders are obsessed with elegance and style, just as writers are, but do the words mean the same thing to both? Part technology story and part memoir, Geek Sublime is a book of sweeping ideas. Vikram shares his obsessions with Adam Spencer.
