I build software.
I have been hacking since I was literally 12 years old. I have approximately 10 years of programming experience.
I’ve written a wide array of software — micro services, full-stack web applications, Unix command-line utilities, advanced algorithms work, silly scripts, you name it.
I open source.
- The freedom to run the program as you wish, for any purpose.
- The freedom to study how the program works, and change it so it does your computing as you wish.
- The freedom to redistribute copies (so you can help your neighbour!)
- The freedom to distribute copies of modified versions to others; by doing this, others can benefit from your changes
I write code.
I’m proficient in the following programming languages, and familiar with many more:
HTML / CSS,
I am a total Unix nerd.
As in software development: I tend to prefer the Unix principles of software design.
As in operating systems: Microsoft makes me sad. I know the ins- and outs- of Linux. My first Linux was Arch — I installed it myself when I was 13. My current Linux is Arch, and I’ve stuck with that for about year now.
I also have a whackload of experience administrating various Debian/Ubuntu servers.
I am a digital rights activist.
I’m a vocal supporter of Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and Free Software Foundation (FSF) initiatives. As a hacker and computer scientist, my goal has always been to make meaningful change through technology — I spend a lot of time thinking about how to do that. I think a lot of data is scary, and constantly challenge its collection and usage. Ethical, privacy-oriented technology makes my heart happy.
