Howdy, I'm Lex Spoon.

I am a computer scientist with a variety of interests, including the Scala programming language. I've helped out and played with Scala in a variety of ways, including coauthoring Programming in Scala.

When I'm not hacking, I play folk music in the Briar Vista Social Club and the Atlanta Open Band.

If you are in or visiting Atlanta, drop by a contra dance at the Chattahoochee Country Dancers some time. Beginners are welcome, and it's a great way to hear some music and get the blood pumping. Alternatively, if you prefer a more sedate activity, stop by for a drink and a game at Camelli's Pizza.

My blog gets updated much more often than this site.

Computer Projects

I work at Semmle, where we use static analysis to give businesses insight into their software.

Previously, some things I have worked on are:

Some increasingly old blog pages are here and here. Also, a few notes about running Linux are here.
