Rijnard van Tonder is the creator of Comby, a pattern-matching syntax and command-line tool that offers a more expressive and more user-friendly alternative to regular expressions for many common patterns in code.

Rijnard was previously a PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University, and we chat about the state of the art in static analysis and automated bug-fixing, new tools made in industry like Pyre and Sapienz, and what place machine learning has in the world of developer tools.
