Introducing me!

Hi! I've been entering instructions into text editors for like 20 years -- cut my teeth on C++, currently geeking out in JavaScript, and filled the time between mostly with Java and Python.

Here are the conclusions I've come to so far with all this experience:

  1. Keep an open mind; what you know now will become wrong later.
  2. Less is more (except in speed).
  3. Don't forget why you're writing what you're writing.
