I'm involved in the Grace programming
language design project.
profile includes programming langauges, software engineering, design
patterns, ownership types, and
the philosophy of computer science, coloured by a long-standing
interest in object-orientation. I'm looking for project and thesis
students in all of these areas.
I'm an associate editor
of ACM TOPLAS ---

James Noble's Laws of Software
- Good projects produce software. Bad projects produce
methodologies. (Corollary: all progress depends on bad projects),
- Every alternative to UML that you invent will be worse than UML itself.
- The best thing about the best ideas is how often they get rediscovered.
