Hi everyone! I'm brand new to the fediverse, but really happy I finally got around to joining.

I'll describe myself as a husband & father first, but after that as a geek w/ 20y of software development behind me and at least 20 more in ahead. I live in snowy Helsinki.

I'm of course interested in FOSS, but also , , , but most importantly endlessly curious about the world and people in general. :)

@ttiurani Hyvää Hi and welcome ;) I hope you'll have a nice time here :) this is a very nice little community :) When you get a chance to make some kind of avatar so that people can keep you apart from others :)

@ttiurani welcome ❤️ don't forget to get yourself an avatar.

What language do you use for software development?

@resynth1943 I have used a ton of languages, but right now hoping to make my main language. I'm just but not very good at it yet, but learning pretty fast. But also typescript, scala, java, python, c, swift, kotlin. :)

@ttiurani well, my main advice would be to take your time. Try not to go learning different languages too quickly, and don't rush yourself into it.

Remember: a language is only as good as the programmer 😛 I only know a bit of webdev and JS / TS, and it's taken me quite far.

@ttiurani Welcome to our wonderful community, hopefully you'll enjoy your stay :)

Learn nim-lang.org instead of rust, then return to rust-lang.org 🙃

@ttiurani welcome from the usa! 🇺🇸
i’m a rust programmer as well; always fun to meet another learner!
i heard about from some debate team friends, but i don’t know much about it. tell me more, i’m curious!

@jonne Väitöskirjasuunnitelmani oli teknologian filosofian ja mediafilosofian välimaastossa mutta en päässyt kovin pitkälle sen kanssa (rahoitusrumba on hirveää ja työelämä vei). Nyt vähän pohdin saisinko siirrettyä sitä degrowth-suuntaan ja aloitettua uudelleen. Oletko itse filosofian kanssa tekemisissä?

@ttiurani Törmäsit varmaan siihen yleisimpään seinään. Kuulostaa mielenkiintoiselta, mikä aihe tarkemmin oli?

Siirryin pelitutkijaksi maisterin tutkinnon jälkeen ja tein väitöskirjan, jossa sovelsin filosofista hermeneutiikkaa pelitutkimukseen.
