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.

Same (ADT) type, different meaning

There are instances where the semantics of distinct types overlap. Through ADTs and OOP, it is possible to represent this using different sets of types, while still being able to work with the set unions and intersections in a way that is type safe.

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.
