A brief and incomplete history of programming languages
Why do programming languages look the way they do today? How did it all started? In this talk we will go over a brief history of programming languages, from the very early days. We will go over greatest hits from Hilbert, Turing, Church, Hopper and more.
I really enjoy finding different ways to write code, sometimes for performance, other times for succinctness, sometimes, just because you can, there is no better way to learn than trying.
When I am not working I tend to play with Haskell or other languages or cats
Conferences and meetups are a great way to learn more, so I try to help when I can to make them happen. For that reason I co-organise Functional Kats and GameCraft. I also speak at local and international conferences like CodeMesh, Progressive.Net, ProF#, Lambda Days and many more.
