I've been coding for 12 years (half my life!), but only 3 years in a professional environment.
I started out coding because I am lazy, writing scripts to perform menial tasks on my behalf; it grew from there and now I write software for a multinational financial services firm - mostly APIs.
I've written in a wide variety of languages and environments due to my curiosity, including - but not limited to:
- PHP 4,5 and 7 - For all it's flaws I still love it
- Lua - Mostly video game modding
- Python - Still learning!
- Java - Dislike it, but it pays well
- Objective-C - Got me my first job as an iOS developer
- Objective-C++ - Never again
- C, C++ - Hard, but rewarding when it works
I'm a bit of a jack of all trades, master of none, but I enjoy tinkering - especially trying to come up with a simple solution to a complex problem.
You can also find me on Twitter as @AndrewMontagne, if you are so inclined.
