Before learning about software freedom, I was actually a young Microsoft fanboy and definitely a Windows "power user". Upon discovering and absorbing the GNU manifesto, I decided to switch cold-turkey to using GNU exclusively. So now I'm pretty great at both. I picked up HTML when I was 12, then decided to learn C#, then Java. I taught myself to write CSS, JS, and do web design. Then I found Haskell, and now I'm in love with Elm, which has everything I love about Haskell. I make Android apps.
When I find something that's just 'better' ideologically, I really get into it. I discovered Elm very recently (after deciding I wanted FRP), and fell in love. It's now the programming language I know better than any other.
Similarly, I'm really getting into Guix lately, because it's simply the right way™ to deal with computing into the future - and I hope to build a lot of the future on it.
projects and hacks
3D printing and music production are hobbies you'll often find me doing.
Programming-wise, I'm currently developing an app that I think could make a huge difference in the lives of people with ADHD that haven't found a working medication. Right now it uses the web, Android, Wear OS, and of course Elm.
If you're an Elm dev, I'd love to help out in designing your API. I love figuring that stuff out.
If you find a mistake in one of my posts, definitely point it out as well. I know a lot of authors here don't care much about grammar and proofreading, but I definitely do, so don't be shy!
If you align yourself with the movement for software freedom, I'm down to collab on outreach ideas. You can find me at LibrePlanet just about every year!
