My name is Marcos Minond, and I’m a Software Engineer. I work on distributed systems at my work and computer languages as a passion. I also volunteer at the Refugee Education and Training Center of Utah as a mentor, organizer, and teacher for programming classes. If you’re interested in volunteering let me know. Here’s a link to my GitHub profile and another one to my resume.

From parsing to interpretation: let’s build a language

The understanding of program evaluation can be a truly enlightening thing for a programmer. By breaking down the process to its essence and implementing the parsing and interpretation steps for a Lisp, we will explore both the interesting and oddly simple algorithms employed in making a language with all of the familiar characteristics like variables, higher-order functions, conditionals, and lexical scope.
