Know Your Devs – Jaroslav Křivánek

With Corona Renderer, you don’t just get the software, you also get the team behind it. Using the software will teach you about that, but how do you get to know about the team?

That’s the idea behind our “Know Your Devs” series of articles, where we invite users to post their questions for a particular developer, and this time it’s co-developer of  Corona in the early days and current Research Lead….. Jaroslav Křivánek!
