I majored in Computer Science at RIT, and minored in Deaf Cultural Studies.
My interests include linguistics, physics, mathematics, programming language theory, human-computer interaction. These passions fuel an urge to learn more about the universe we inhabit.
- An attempt to jam Smalltalk-style dynamic objects within C.
I’d call it a success, or at least close enough.
- A much safer language than Objective-C, Swift takes inspiration from a variety of languages
and tries to learn from their mistakes while reaping the bennifits.
- I find the best features tend to be inspired from ML-languages, C++, C#, and Objective-C of course.
- C and C++
- Two classic languages every programmer’s heard of. Their aim is efficiency and speed.
- Some of my personal projects have been in C, such as [Reggie the Regex Parser]
- Go’s amazing channel and coroutine based concurrency model reveal
that would spoil any programmer.
- My first introduction to the magical world of
and sum types.
- My life as a programmer was forever changed after learning this language.
- Standard ML
- My first ML.
- Yet another great strongly-type-inferred functional language.
- My first functional language.
- Through playing with this language, I accidentally learned the lambda calculus
while trying to create an iterative fibonacci sequence function using anonymous
- A great scripting language which I mostly use for manipulating large amounts of text.
- Microsoft’s answer to Java, C# is a nice language with some modern programming
paradigm ideas, such as anonymous functions (called delegates).
- Microsoft’s ML-style functional language, infulenced by OCaml.
- Designed to run on the .Net Runtime and be compatible with all of Microsoft’s APIs.
- Somewhat strange to program with. Programming with object-oriented APIs in a functional
language is strange. The resulting programs have a weird blend of APIs from both worlds.
- A good language for teaching Object-Oriented design.
- The JVM is a good piece of technology too.
- The language could use some work, but with Java 1.8 they’re starting to move in
the right direction.
- I learned this just because I thought it was a cool idea, even if it’s not very
pratical for “real” programming.
- This is cool in that it is heavily infulenced by Smalltalk,
using a VM where the saved program code is one-and-the-same wiht the compiled binary code.
- It had some really interesting ideas as a language. It’s too bad it never really
