Alto Software is a Free
Software micro consultancy specialized in functional programming.
Founded in 1990, we work for universities, research labs, space
agencies, ngos and some industries.
Our focus is on symbolic processing, parallel
computation, database, and computer vision.
Our main prototyping and development tool is the Guile
Scheme language, which, coupled to Geiser, really rocks!
"Guile is a delightful medium for making crafty
programs, from the most ephemeral scripts to long-lived systems that you
can rely on for years."
"Guile takes the elegant Scheme programming
language, integrates it with the POSIX environments that you
know and loathe and love, and wraps it all up in a responsive, hackable
environment that nurtures programs from the small up to the large."
