A lot of work at the second iteration of the year:

More Code Generation with AjGenesis

I created

with a simple Sinatra site generated using AjGenesis for Node. I should add the entity support (list, persistence, view, edit, new) but it was created in two hours. Nice experience adapting templates


An Akka-like actor model implemented in C#. It was born on Sunday:

I’m using TDD, as usual. My ideas are implemented using baby steps, make it works, make it right, and in the future, make it fast. I’m not concerned with performance yet, but to have all the pieces in place for local run. Then, I will add distributed processing. One of the key things is the message mailbox management. By now, I have only one by actor system, implemented using a concurrent queue. I planned to add a queue by actor, if specified at creation of the actor.

Scala in JavaScript

The project

An interpreter, not a “transpiler” to JavaScript. I want to do dog fooding of my SimpleGrammar project, and learn a bit about Scala language.

Lambda Calculus

Implemented in JavaScript, a Saturday code kata:

Next steps: add named functions.


More work in my Dylan-like language implemented as an interpreter over C#:


I added minor functionality to ClojSharp (Clojure-like in C#) I worked on two non-public projects.

More fun is coming

Keep tuned!

Machine learning, a branch of artificial intelligence, is a scientific discipline concerned with the design and development of algorithms that allow computers to evolve behaviors based on empirical data, such as from sensor data or databases. Machine learning is concerned with the development of algorithms allowing the machine to learn via inductive inference based on observing data that represents incomplete information about statistical phenomenon and generalize it to rules and make predictions on missing attributes or future data. An important task of machine learning is classification, which is also referred to as pattern recognition, in which machines “learn” to automatically recognize complex patterns, to distinguish between exemplars based on their different patterns, and to make intelligent predictions on their class.

Lambda Calculus: Links, News and Resources (1)

"Everything is a lambda in the end" ajlopez (past century)

In mathematical logic and computer science, lambda calculus, also written as λ-calculus, is a formal system for function definition, function application and recursion. The portion of lambda calculus relevant to computation is now called the untyped lambda calculus. In both typed and untyped versions, ideas from lambda calculus have found application in the fields of logic, recursion theory (computability), and linguistics, and have played an important role in the development of the theory of programming languages (with untyped lambda calculus being the original inspiration for functional programming, in particular Lisp, and typed lambda calculi serving as the foundation for modern type systems).
