Profile for Claudia Doppioslash: "a Game Developer and a moderately smug LISP weenie. Known in programming circles for her undying love for obscure and mind-bending programming languages, she has not yet given up on using LISP, and functional languages to develop games.

"An ever increasing laziness and loathing of repetitive work is encouraging her to look very closely into interactive development and better ways to debug and to promote them to anyone who will listen."
