Yay, I now have running on a PYNQ-Z1 FPGA board. It has a 650MHz dual-core Arm Cortex-A9 with 512MB RAM. That is not enough memory to run though.

In a pure functional language, all constructs can be expressed as anonymous functions ("lambda functions"). I wrote an article "Everything is a function" that explains how this works.

I'm looking for some motivated computer programmers to learn and collaborate with.

I am the sole developer at my job, and the (mostly) sole developer for all of my side projects; and to be frank, I've been lonely.

Feel free to boost, dm, and share links.
