About the Site

Recursion is the personal blog of software developer Luke Francl.

I've been developing web applications for over decade, using everything from Perl, PHP, Java and Ruby to Tcl (yes, really!).

I have been fortunate to have been involved in some interesting technology experiences. I co-organize the Minnesota BarCamp and helped grow the event into one of the largest in the country; wrote a chapter for Advanced Rails Recipes and co-authored a PeepCode ebook; and I was a member of the Summer 2009 Y Combinator batch. After my startup, I went back to consulting and have built apps for clients ranging from Fortune 500 to one man startups.

Besides programming, I enjoy cycling, travel, reading, cooking and cats.
