This Festschrift for Rinus Plasmeijer has been compiled to celebrate the combined occasion of Rinus’s 61st birthday and the 25th Symposium on Implementation and Application of Functional Languages.
For this Festschrift we invited all former PhD students of Rinus as well as researchers in the field of functional programming who are listed in joint publications with Rinus. The contributions are scientific essays, and the theme of the book is beautiful code. We asked the authors to write about the influence the beauty of functional programming has had or still has on their work. The order of appearance in this Festschrift is inspired loosely by the timeline that is described above.
