λ♥ Programs with functions



Brooklyn is the CEO & Chief Scientist at SPADE Co, an R&D agency focused on Web3 technologies. She is an Ethereum Core Developer, and has written a number of blockchain-related standards. She is the author of several Elixir libraries, including Witchcraft, Exceptional, Algae, and Quark. She has founded and organised multiple meetups and conferences, centred around functional programming, culture and mentorship.


Lately she has been thinking a lot about the success and failure modes of different tech disciplines, speeding up VMs, and how dependent types can help save us from ourselves. When not roaming the world as a digital nomad, Brooklyn is based out of Vancouver, Canada.
