Switching from twitter, so here's a(n) #introduction
Hi! I'm a high school student from Chicago. Right now I spend most of my free time developing tools to give more kids from around the city an opportunity to learn to code. I'm super into good design and improving human interactions, so most of my projects are web-based.
Other things I enjoy: philosophy, electronic music, functional programming, biking.

https://www.wired.com/story/elon-musk-tesla-life-inside-gigafactory/ - fascinating read about Musk. His story interests me so much because it's a tale of what success, fame, and money can do to an otherwise intelligent person.
I just gained a hell of a lot more respect for neovim:
Trying to remove word parasites such as "uh" and "like" from your speech is pretty cool, but I think something more important is getting rid of pointless passive agressiveness. One of the best examples of this is "<statement of disagreement>, but ok". If you disagree with someone you should just be up-front about that.
I guess it's a little late for #introductions but you can't stop me
There's not much about me to say, I'm a 19 year old #compsci student in conflict between entering the current #cyberpunk industry that's developing to escape my home country and pursuing a career making weird, artsy games. My ultimate professional goal is to emulate the feeling of being 11 and coding on my Commodore 64 with my moldy BASIC reference book.

Hi! I'm an Australian high school student and I participate in open-source programming. I contribute various little bits and pieces towards the development of Homebrew software for the Wii U.
I usually enjoy anything related to programming or computer security, and do a little Wii U and Xbox gaming every now and then.
In addition to Fosstodon you can find me on Twitter (CreeperMario258), Discord (CreeperMario#6152) and GitHub (CreeperMario).
I like Vue, OCaml, and teaching people how to code.
Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
