The guy who maintains Helm, an important package in Emacs, is a 57-year old alpine mountain guide who learned to program when he was 42, as a hobby.


@peregrine Sadly he seems to have just stepped down from maintaining it - - but what an epic contribution!


That is pretty incredible.

Emacs seems like it has so many deeply interesting people involved with it.
