I am the lucky donkey who gets to announce Patrick Lioi has joined Los Techies. I’ve benefited from working with Patrick at two jobs now; the first was a happy coincidence, the second, quite deliberate.
Patrick is interested in what makes programming languages tick. To that end, he’s built a lexer/parser called Parsley, which he uses in the compiler for Rook, a language he’s designing. His latest endeavor is Fixie, a unit-testing framework, and he’s been chronicling his progress and discoveries on Fixie’s project page. (You can also find him on Twitter as @plioi.)
I’m delighted Patrick will be joining our community. I think you’ll get a real kick out of what he has to say.
