Alday-Gaiotto-Tachikawa connect instanton counts in gauge theory with conformal blocks for W-algebras. We realize this mathematically by relating q-deformed W-algebras with the affine q-Yangians that control gauge theory, thus offering an affine, q-deformed generalization of the well-known Brundan-Kleshchev construction in type A
