Summary

A programmer for 15 years (since I was 10), but always learning something new every day. Always looking to improve! Constructive criticism welcome.

Programming

I'm knowledgeable in C and Python, competent in Bash and Java, and somewhat competent in C++. Mostly a programmer for Unix systems, but I've been known to dabble in Windows too on a rare occasion.

I aim to make my programs as portable as possible on Unix, so I tend to prefer POSIX solutions (and portable libraries) rather than anything platform-specific.

I don't like unnecessary cruft, so I avoid superfluous dependencies in my software unless necessary.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery once said:

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

These are the words I live by when coding. No more complexity than necessary, but provide an interface that covers most use cases.

Coding style

I am very picky about my personal coding style, but I think most programmers are.

  • C/C++/Java: Allman-style. Every time, although sometimes I feel like a Carthaginian in Rome when doing it in Java.
  • Python: PEP 8
  • Bash: 8 space indent, similar to Allman style for functions.

Hobbies

I like cycling, drone piloting, photography, and travelling.
