Computing with Christopher Alexander

For a decade, I worked with Chris Alexander on real-world projects, built software, wrote proposals, concocted web strategies, and made some discoveries. I studied his approach to work, and the surprisingly consistent criteria he applied, with great diligence, in his pursuit of quality. His process still seems fresh, radical, and necessary for the world to understand -- so I’d like to share my experience.

Greg Bryant is a community organizer ... who's been programming for the last 48 years. In the 1980s he was a language designer and unix consultant. In the ‘90s he built navigation systems, open source web services, and mobile apps. He guides the Beautiful Software seminar at Building Beauty, and runs experiments at https://www.urbanology.com.
