Sam Aaron
Creator of @Sonic_Pi, programmer, educator, live coding musician

By day, Sam Aaron is a mild-mannered Research Associate at the Cambridge University Digital Technology Group. By night, he’s a live coder who considers programming as performance and strongly believes in the importance of celebrating creativity within all aspects of programming.

Sam is interested in domain specific languages, the aesthetics of programming languages and the more general concept of language oriented programming.

He is inspired by people who look further afield than the traditional literature to bring powerful new ideas and concepts back to the field of computing.

As such, he's currently performing postdoctoral research exploring the combination of low-level efficient real-time systems with high-level expressive languages and interfaces towards the creation of new systems for the improvisation of music.
