I’m a long-haired metalhead from New York who didn’t get his own computer until he was 18 and got into coding by writing batch files with a third-hand copy of DOS for Dummies as a guide.
I got into tech because it paid better than cleaning toilets at a supermarket. When I got exposed to Unix in college, it was almost a religious experience, and I’ve been running Unix-like operating systems on personal equipment ever since, but I’m a Windows developer for my sins.
As a developer I’m a bit like Gregory House, but without the drug habit, racism, and misogyny. My strengths lie in implementation, debugging, and bombarding business analysts and sometimes clients with questions until they finally reveal their true requirements.
After all, everybody lies.
