My name is Quentin Duval, I am a professional C++ software developer, with almost 6 years experience. More than just a job, programming is really a passion to me.

I love solving problems, writing algorithms, explore non trivial trade-offs, reading beautiful code from others, or simply fooling around with code to implement crazy things.

I also have a not so secret love affair with functional programming.

When I first discovered it through Haskell, some 4 years ago, it was nothing less than a revelation to me. The beauty, elegance and simplicity of the functional programming approach amazed me and it still does today. Having discovered Clojure since then reinforced this feeling in me.

This blog is all about sharing some of this passion with you. The passion of witnessing beauty in well designed code. The pleasure of being amazed by the smarts of an algorithm. The sheer joy of contemplating simplicity.
