Nick Mudge Ignition Software Consulting & Development

I have been having fun at, a new website that has interviews with authors of programming tools and technologies.

I posted an Interview With Andy Lester - Author of Grep Replacement Tool Ack.

And Interview With Albert Graf - Author of the Pure Programming Language.

Here's a short description of Pure:
Pure is a functional programming language based on term rewriting. It has a syntax featuring curried function applications, lexical closures and equational definitions with pattern matching, and thus is somewhat similar to languages of the Haskell and ML variety. Pure is also a dynamic language, and is more like Lisp in this respect. The interpreter has an LLVM backend that does JIT compilation.

Soon I will post another interview with Salvatore Sanfilippo about Redis.
