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.

wired.com/story/elon-musk-tesl - 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.

Although on second thought 1000s of commands isn't really a good user experience...

This is what good user experience looks like, folks.

> clones spacemacs repo
> opens elixir file
> autocomplete and linting with no additional config
What is this madness?!

Today I finally realized something I should have realized a long time ago: *the concept of a backend generating html is fundamentally incompatible with modern day sites*. All modern backends should just be apis, which seems like it leads to worse code but really there's just no other way.

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).
