It’s surprising how complicated things can get when you combine higher order programming with music making. Learn about functional composition, infinite data structures, continuation passing style, functions that make functions from functions, parsers, interpreters and learn how easy it is to make a compiler if you’re not worried about Turing Completeness.
Piers Cawley started programming Perl in the mid nineties, but recently spent a few years working as a Ruby programmer.
He’s currently writing Perl for Headforwards in Cornwall. His surfing days are behind him.
He’s a singer and balloon modeller, and has created custom balloon millinery for Sarah Novotny.
