  1. Aaron W. Hsu

    I’m a passionate computing artist with over a decade of experience in Scheme before I began to explore the wider application of array languages to HCI/d, parallel programming, human/computer performance, and human to human communication.

  15. Profile photo of Matthias Heinzel

    Matthias Heinzel

    Matthias started programming with C on microcontrollers, but during his computer engineering degree fell under the spell of immutability, purity and principled abstraction. Since then, he has been interested in both hardware, functional programming and what happens at their intersection.
