Jacob’s first introduction to programming was automating Excel spreadsheets because he was too lazy to copy-paste. His interest in doing more by typing less led him to web-development, where he mostly develops tools and libraries for teams to use internally. After attending the data61 course on functional programming he fell in love with the expressiveness of the approach, and is always looking for a new way to inject it into his daily workflow.
