Matthew Lugg (he/they)
Zig Programming Language
Core Team Member


Hi! I’m Matthew - you might know me online as mlugg.

I’m currently finishing up my BA in Computer Science at the University of Oxford. Most of my free time has always been spent programming in some sense, and since discovering Zig in 2020, my passion for systems programming has only gotten stronger. Since 2023, I’ve been a Zig core team member, dedicating my time to improving the Zig compiler.
