Today is the first of December 2020. This has been a long and winding year but it’s going to end with one positive thing. It is called Advent of Code and is the most amazing hackers event. Check it out at https://adventofcode.com/
I am solving problems in Clojure this year and will document some solutions on this blog. Besides AOC’20 I’ll try and write one or two tech posts on a weekly basis.
As for me. I am a 35 year old hacker with a mass of experience in developing software. My first run-in with software development was ye-olde Commodore 64 where I experimented with QBASIC and wrote a bunch of simple programs before I even knew what code actually was.
From QBASIC I jumped through many hoops, Turbo Pascal, C++, Python. At University it was Java. Later on I worked commercially on Python, Go back-ends. More recently it was Java EE again. I’ve had encounters with C# and PHP. My favorite programming language of all times remains Python (with types excluded).
Last programming language which I am still learning is Rust and I am actually writing these blog posts in cred editor which is being coded in Rust. Cred has plenty of bugs but in general its usable and I intend to slowly stabilize it over following months.
And with that I conclude the grand opening of this blog.
