Oliver Ford

London, United Kingdom


Oliver Ford is a recent graduate of Electronic & Information Engineering at Imperial College London, where for his final project he implemented an HTTP/REST client for Rust that uses the language’s type system to make compile-time guarantees about the correctness of the client code’s API use. He now works on web services for the IoT at Arm, where he promotes the use of mypy and typing in Python, and jokes daily that something ought to be re-written in Rust. He likes Python really, he promises.
