What Is Code?

April 04, 2016


Paul Ford

Programmer & Writer, Postlight

Paul Ford is the co-founder of Postlight, an agency that builds big beautiful technology things in NYC. He is also a writer and programmer. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, kids, cats, books, and Raspberry Pis.


Paul Ford didn’t expect his article on coding to go big. But almost a year later, the Bloomberg issue dedicated to “What is code?” is still completely sold out. We dig into the major topics covered in that long and highly entertaining piece, like conferences, open source, and languages, and how Paul and the editors created a technical article that still managed to be accessible to coder and non-coders alike.
