Robin Templeton

Robin Templeton is a free software advocate who enjoys working on compilers, programming language design, and exploring system architecture. Their enduring fascination with Lisp environments and distributed object capability secure programming naturally lead them to an interest in the Spritely Institute, where they currently work as a compiler engineer focused on the Guile Hoot project.

Robin's previous work spans working on compilers at Igalia (including building the JavaScript BigInt implementation in Firefox, used by millions of users every day), building a variant of GNU Emacs which runs on top of GNU Guile, working on game development tools for Tech Drone, and volunteering for (including nine years serving on the board of directors).

If given the opportunity and interest, they will bless an interested listener with a treasure trove of obscure Lisp history.
