Lisp Hackers: Marijn Haverbeke

The next person in our series is Marijn Haverbeke, who’s not only the author of several pretty useful Common Lisp libraries (some of which he touches in the interview), but also a succesful JavaScript hacker, winning JS1K contest, and writing a profound book about the language — “Eloquent JavaScript”. Besides, he hacks on Mozilla Rust and his own language Hob, not to mention co-authoring a JavaScript-to-Common-Lisp transpiler, writing some games in Scheme, and experimenting with Haskell. In the interview he shares his perspective, based in knowledge and experience with so many different languages.

Plus, is a very nice guy and I have his book with an autograph :).
