Pi first started writing programs and games on her family’s computer as a child, and she hasn’t stopped programming since. She discovered Haskell in 2005, and fell in love with the language’s depth, power, soundness, and elegance. She’s worked with a number of other programming languages over the past 20 years, and is a proponent of functional and type-driven approaches in all of them. She loves learning and teaching programming at all levels, and is particularly interested in programming language design and ergonomics, developer tooling, and automated software verification.
Outside of programming, she loves music, and performs occasionally. She likes playing go, even though she’s not very good at it. She’s proudly queer, and passionate about LGBT+ representation in the tech industry. 🏳️🌈 🏳️⚧️
