I'm a Haskell programmer who lives in Cambridge with my wife Emily and son Henry. I have a PhD in Computer Science from York University, working on making functional programs shorter, faster and safer. Since then I've worked at Credit Suisse, Standard Chartered, Barclays Bank and Digital Asset, and I currently work at Facebook — but all content and opinions are my own. I'm a strong believer in the functional programming approach, finding the combination of conciseness, static-typing and testability to offer significant advantages. I've got a blog mostly about Haskell, and I'm also on Twitter, LinkedIn and GitHub. To get in touch email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Open Source Projects
I develop a number of open source Haskell projects, all of which can be found at my Github page or on Hackage. I welcome both contributions via pull requests and bug reports via the GitHub issue trackers. Some of my more popular projects include:
- Shake - a library for writing build systems, an alternative to
- Hoogle - a Haskell API search engine, searching the standard Haskell libraries by function name and type signature.
- HLint - a tool that suggests stylistic improvements to Haskell code.
