Algebra-Driven Design

September 10, 2020

Wondering where I’ve been lately?

After almost a year of work, I’m thrilled to announce the completion my new book, Algebra-Driven Design. It’s the culmination of two rewrites, and comes with a beautiful foreword written by John Hughes, the inventor of QuickCheck.

In the book, we take a fundamentally different approach to the software design process, focusing on deriving libraries from equations, algebraic manipulation and well-studied mathematical objects. The resulting code is guaranteed to be free of abstraction leaks, and in many cases, actually writes itself.

If that sounds like the sort of software you’d like to write, I’d highly encourage you to give it a read.
