I am passionate about learning, teaching, and practising functional programming. I frequently answer questions on Gitter and Stack Overflow, and occasionally speak at conferences. In 2018 I introduced Sanctuary to a broad audience at ReactiveConf in Prague.
In addition to the many sanctuary-js projects, I maintain several other useful projects:
- Base64.js – polyfill for browsers that don’t provide
- Transcribe – generate Markdown documentation from code comments
- xyz – publish npm packages with fewer screw-ups
I have ambitious goals for improving the Sanctuary ecosystem, including:
- adding type-aware search to sanctuary.js.org;
- creating a tutorial to show how to set up a project that includes sanctuary-def and custom types;
- adding lens functions to Sanctuary;
- documenting and releasing sanctuary-argv, a principled argument parser;
- releasing a new version of the Fantasy Land specification with fully-qualified type representatives;
- creating and releasing sanctuary-set and sanctuary-map; and
- creating and releasing a testing library that does not rely on throwing and catching exceptions.
I will complete these projects, but this could take years of evenings and weekends. My dream is to work on Sanctuary and related projects full-time, which would dramatically reduce the time frame.
