Quora Answer : Who is your favorite Quora writer in programming?

Sep 25, 2019

There are a lot of good ones.

And I apologise in advance for those I'm going to miss out.

But ...

Alan Kay ... because ... wow! Alan Kay, here on Quora, talking to us mere mortals. Dropping the benefits of his considerable wisdom and historical perspective. And then he starts randomly writing about guitars and how he's learning to play the lute. And you realize that he's actually one of the coolest dudes on the planet.

Panicz Godek because he does Lispy stuff that I'm into. And particularly because this was one of the most interesting and informative programming answers I read recently. : Panicz Godek's answer to Can you explain to non-coders the most impressive code you've seen?

Quildreen Motta because she knows a terrifying amount about stuff I didn't know existed, and I've found mind blowing things from links she's dropped.

Tikhon Jelvis has forced me to confront my prejudices against static typing and Haskell and understand them a bit better.

Anne Ogborn when I need to go to the source on Prolog

And a bunch of others I've learned from : Vladislav Zorov, Eliot Miranda, \xc5\x9acis\xc5\x82aw Dercz, Jon Harrop, Richard Kenneth Eng, Sophia Gold, Alan Mellor, Gregg Irwin etc.
