8 Acknowledgments

Glean does what it does in large part by standing on the shoulders of giants. Other learning tools served as a foil for developing concepts in use in Glean: Anki, Mnemosyne, Org-Drill, and many more.

The practical implementation of Glean is the product of my ongoing engagement with the practices of functional programming, and RESTful interfaces.

Finally, in many ways, the developement of Glean has been guided by the question of “What would Guix do?”, or even, can I pinch a Guix file as a starting point?
