Video: Meet Dr. Vinith Misra, Technical Consultant for HBO’s Silicon Valley

In a few weeks time we will get to see the second season of HBO’s “Silicon Valley.” When the show debuted last year I was a bit skeptical and unsure if I wanted to watch it. But, this was a Mike Judge show and I thoroughly enjoyed his film “Office Space.”  I  tuned into the first show of “Silicon Valley,” and not sure what to make of it.Anyway, I watched the second, third and by the fourth episode I started to enjoy the show and was amazed by the attention to technical details in the show.

Judge had spent sometime working for a tech company in Silicon Valley and that explains that attention to technical details. But, who was the technical consultant that helped Judge and his team with the algorithms and all the geeky details for Pied Piper? Turns out it was Dr. Vinith Misra, who is the technical consultant for the show. He was a student at Stanford University when he first started working with the show and is working with them for the show’s second season. Here is a trailer of the second season of “Silicon Valley,” that we can watch in a few weeks time.

Here is our interview with Dr. Vinith Misra, who shares how he got to work with the team at “Silicon Valley.”
