Hey everyone. I'm Dwayne :). After reading a couple good articles from dev.to and hearing nice things about the community I decided to give the site a try.

I'm currently (as of April 2019) learning how to design and implement programming languages using the book "Essentials of Programming Languages by Friedman and Wand (3rd Edition)". It's difficult but rewarding learning from the masters.

My day job is as a full stack web developer for a Point of Sale software company. On a day to day basis I work with Ruby, PostgreSQL and JavaScript (React/Redux) among other tech. I dream of the day I get paid to work with Elm or Haskell or Rust.

Aside from that I enjoy playing basketball, running, cycling, swimming, hiking (I'm pretty active) and living a plant-based lifestyle.

You're welcome, Dwayne. Plant-based lifestyle? Can you please explain that?
I love your profile.

Sure Biodun.

With respect to my diet, I don't consume any animal products. Learn more here.

With respect to everything else, if there is a plant-based alternative I'd gravitate toward that option because it's usually better for the animals, the environment or us humans.
