Hi there! I'm a Computer Science student at the University of Minnesota, and I've got a wide variety of interests under this field. I've been doing web development for a long time and now I'm looking into security, programming language development, and software development!
In an effort to rely on less services, I started doing a lot of self-hosting and rewriting of software. Check out some of the projects I'm doing over on my public Git viewer!
My setup can be found here.
Here's some of the languages I like, in approximate order of my skill/confidence in using them:
- Rust I can't say I'm fluent in Rust, but writing code in Rust just feels right. Most of my recent projects have been done in Rust.
- Go I like the way this language is opinionated, and makes for very clean code. Unfortunately, because of their design decisions it's relatively lacking in language features.
- Python One of my favorite languages by far. Aside from its weakness in performance, I love how the language looks. I do have several bones to pick, especially towards its dependency ecosystem.
- C Largely prefer this over C++ because of much finer control over what's happening.
- OCaml Learned this from a functional programming class, and I still use it from time to time; I kinda see it as the "Python" of functional languages.
- C++ Good for when I did competitive programming because of its very comprehensive standard library.
If you want my resume, contact me through one of these means:
