A Home for Wayward Programs
I am a thirtysomething software developer currently located in Toronto, Canada.
I was born in Panaji, India, and clocked a little bit of time in Saudi Arabia and Austria before rooting myself in the land of Maple Syrup and the Tragically Hip.
In 2008 I graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Computer Science degree and Philosophy minor. I was an active member (and once-President) of the university's Computer Science Club while I was there, arranging visiting lectures from Richard M. Stallman and Bjarne Stroustrup.
While I have a variety of backend and full-stack experience, there are particular things I find myself constantly fascinated by:
I've got some non-computer-science interests, too:
Perhaps you do not remember the days of DOS, or perhaps you very much remember them :D
I am very much a backend developer by trade, while I read up on and appreciate the art of displaying visual information, I must be honest with myself in that I am no great visual designer and any attempts to be so would be pale imitations of my betters. If I'm going to lean on the visual designs of others, I might as well aim for something that's quirky, readable, and reflects well upon my character and the earliest moments when I fell in love with the art of computer programming.
