    Jonathan Arnett

    Hello folks! My name is Jonathan but I go by "J3RN" in many places on the net (there are also other J3RNs, so beware). I've been programming for a bit over a decade now with most of that time spent doing web development. Specifically, I worked in Ruby on Rails for ~5 years and have been working in Elixir and Phoenix for ~4. I've never really been satisfied by the tools available and have been longing for a way to help developers comprehend software systems. I'm interested in programming languages, IDE design, code visualizations, and other developer-centric HCI topics. I'm currently located in Ohio, so let me know if you're in-state and maybe we can meet up (or establish a meetup!)

    Hi everyone! I'm Lu (or Luke - either is fine) and I use the @Lu Wilson handle in most places. For around 7 years, I was a teacher for young kids with additional needs - but in January I left that to dedicate more time to coding. I'm currently working as a freelance developer+designer! I really like expressing myself with creative coding, and I share my stuff in some

    Hey everyone! I’m new to software development (have been skilling up for the last couple years towards a full-time position) but have always been deeply fascinated by technology and it’s usage. My more immediate background is in math eduction. Love thinking about the classic paradigms and how the inform how we think about and use software, and what new metaphores can be created. Glad to be here!

    Hello! I'm Jarno from Southern Finland. I found this amazing community while doing research for my own project. I've been lurking around for a while, but thought maybe I'll introduce myself and start taking part in some of the discussions 😃. I've been writing code for around 15 years, working most of my professional career as a consultant. Currently I'm working both as a freelancer and on my own fore mentioned unreleased textual low-code/no-code (business) logic programming solution. I've been working on and thinking about the project since 2016-2017, mostly only occasionally, but recently also full time. The project has taken many turns on the way, but I certainly hope I can share some progress within months, not years!

    Hey everyone. Came here to workshop and get feedback on my browser-based node editor https://nodysseus.ulysses.codes. It encapsulates a lot of ideas from functional programming while staying true to a graph-first way of thinking. Intro video at

    Hi everyone! I am José Valim, I work on the Elixir programming language, and recently I started working on a code notebook for Elixir called Livebook. We have been exploring many visual ideas lately, which brought me to this community. 🙂 In case you want to check out the work we have done so far, here is a recent presentation of mine (timestamped):

    The video shows how we automatically generate diagrams from process communication, render supervision trees, visually debug pipelines, and plot charts and more!

    Hi everyone! I am Klaas van Schelven. I worked on Expressions of Change ("a research project that aims to improve the tools for constructing ever-changing computer programs by putting the changes themselves central in the programming experience") before I switched back to billed-by-the-hour non-futuristic coding. Happy to have linked up with fellow futurists though, have to admit seeing y'all post here does re-ignite a passion that I've been trying to ignore for a while now 😃

    Howdy Coders! I am Cyrus and I spend most of my time developing new oncology drugs but I'm a geek at heart and enjoy the podcast. Joined the slack to (pile on?) gripe about the Bracha & Cook paper and defend RPG's view, but, then again, maybe I'm just an incommensurable lisper.
