Simon Peyton Jones

  • Peter Seibel


One of the instigators, back in 1987, of the project that led to the definition of the programming language Haskell, Simon Peyton Jones is a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research’s lab in Cambridge, England. He edited the Haskell 98 Revised Report, the current stable definition of the language; he is the architect and lead developer of the Glasgow Haskell Compiler (GHC), the “de facto standard compiler” according to haskell. org; and he gave Haskell its widely cited unofficial motto: “Avoid success at all costs.”
