Nimrod: A New Approach to Metaprogramming

Andreas Rumpf is the designer of the Nimrod programming language. He is a software engineer working at a top secret company and constantly attempts to create his own start-up. He has programmed in various programming languages over the years (including quite obscure ones) without being satisfied with any of them. Andreas Rumpf holds a degree in Computer Science.
