- Software developer / designer
Alain Otjens works at the Waag as front-end developer/designer. In the past he has been doing this as a freelancer for various clients, many in the cultural sector.
During his studies Sociology and New Media (UvA), Alain developed a main interest in how technology is perceived, discussed and imagined and how this relates to the choices that are embedded in technology.
With working on Waag projects Alain wants to contribute to technology that is better attuned to democratic values and to technology that fosters positive societal change.
Alain's work at Waag mainly involves interaction design, graphic design and front-end development on websites, data visualisations and interactive toolboxes.
