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