Bio

Geoff Reedy is a self-confessed programming languages geek from Albuquerque, NM. He cut his teeth with Perl and C, moved on to Python, then saw the light of strong static typing and FP in Scala, Haskell, OCaml (but he still likes Python sometimes). He holds equal interest in programming language theory, design and implementation. His current big project is an LLVM backend for the Scala compiler.
