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."
