Freelance, Lonely Coffee


Tim Nugent pretends to be a mobile app developer, game designer, tools builder, researcher, and tech author. When he isn’t busy avoiding being found out as a fraud, Tim spends most of his time designing and creating little apps and games he won’t let anyone see. He also spent a disproportionately long time writing his tiny little bio, most of which was taken up trying to stick a witty sci-fi reference in…before he simply gave up. He’s writing Practical Artificial Intelligence with Swift for O’Reilly and building a game for a power transmission company about a naughty quoll. (A quoll is an Australian animal.)

Using Another Tool for Language Recognition (ANTLR) Tim Nugent, Jon Manning, and Paris Buttfield-Addison build an entirely new programming language starting from nothing and ending up with a working interpreter. It will probably be a bad language, but it'll be ours and no one can take that from us. Read more.
