Freelance developer

I am a freelance developer (I do mainly Ruby on Rails websites for a living) with a special interest in free-software, GNU/Linux and programming languages (Python, Ruby, Javascript, Haskell, Erlang, Scala...). Check my website if you want to hire me:

Favorite programming quotes

This is the Unix philosophy: Write programs that do one thing and do it well. Write programs to work together. Write programs to handle text streams, because that is a universal interface.

Data dominates. If you've chosen the right data structures and organized things well, the algorithms will almost always be self-evident. Data structures, not algorithms, are central to programming. Let the data guide the programming.

Functional programming is like describing your problem to a mathematician. Imperative programming is like giving instructions to an idiot.

Controlling complexity is the essence of computer programming.

comment What is the status of evolutionary psychology in academia today?
Thanks for your answer. I didn't know about ACT-R, I'll look into it. And indeed, I think we all agree that "just-so" arguments sometimes found in evolutionary arguments (psychological or otherwise) are simply bad science.
