Hi! My name is William Lachance, though most people just call me “Will”.

I’m a thirtysomething developer of software in Toronto, Ontario, Canada currently working for Mozilla in the Engineering Productivity group.

I have an interest in machine learning and artificial intelligence, and try to find useful ways of applying research in these areas to problems faced by my employer. I am currently trying to figure out how to better identify and resolve performance regressions in the Firefox family of products.

This blog is mostly work related, but occasionally I talk about other things.

Miscellaneous facts about Will:

  • Practices hot yoga and zazen meditation
  • Rides a bicycle most of the time, even in the Canadian winter
  • Mostly vegetarian (sometimes eats mussels and oysters)
  • Often refers to self in third person
