Leah is a programmer with an interest in lesser-known languages and technologies – Rust, Julia, and the Haiku operating system. A summer of writing OCaml as an intern at Jane Street completely convinced her of the value and practicality of functional programming.
While at Hacker School1 this spring, she tried out Julia, wrote the WebSockets.jl package2, and fell in love with the language. Since then she has given several workshops on Julia and spent the summer at MIT adding opt-in type “critiquing” (like type checking, but gentler) to the language. This fall, she is finishing an MSE at Johns Hopkins University, where her thesis project is the continuation of her type critiquing work.
