I enjoy making things work elegantly more than just making them work and I consider myself a very honest and straightforward person. I value empathy and rational thinking. I enjoy learning about and debating ethics and philosophy. What I lack in formal education in these fields I make up for in curiosity and open-mindedness. I'm currently looking to get started with competitive programming and using Exercism to practice. I hope to accelerate people's progression through the Elixir track, as there is currently a huge lack in mentors and I'm sure it's frustrating people to wait many days for their code to be reviewed (although it does prepare us well for the realities of business :P).
I love Ruby and have been using it professionally for more than 10 years. I also have been spending time on how to write a easy to read and easy to extend Ruby code. I am new to mentoring and a non-native English speaker. Please excuse my brevity. If my feedback to you is rude, first I am sorry and second it was not my intention. Please do reach out to me, it gives me an opportunity to learn through feedback for mentoring.
Considered for a new version of the legacy System I'm working with, a coworker presented Clojure to me and we found early it helps a lot on keeping complexity low with a systemic aproach to software projects. We have used in some prototypes. Still learning all I can of it, I hope I could share some knowledege of it by mentoring and learn at the same time.
I write software for music and science education, mostly in Clojure but I also enjoy using C, Python and Bash. As a 'professional beginner', my focus is on making small programs that are easy to understand and modify if desired, never considering a topic fully learned until I can confidently explain it to someone else.
I learned to program on embedded devices, and later moved to iOS development in Objective-C and Swift. Most recently, I've been exploring functional programming in Scala. I'm interested in security principles and applied cryptography. And if I can ever find some spare free time, I would love to try out Rust!
I am drawn to Elm because it is a safe, reliable, and refactorable alternative to building webapps. It's an approachable language that not only supports the dynamic nature of greenfield projects, but it can also be adopted in small steps within legacy apps implemented in other front-end solutions.
Python was my first programming language; I started learning it in school and discovered a passion for the power of programming. I strongly believe that Python is one of the best languages, especially for beginners! I currently specialize in using Python for mathematics, namely numerical analysis.
I chanced upon Elixir back in early 2014 when we were looking out for a replacement stack that is as pleasant and productive to work in as Ruby, while giving us the reliability and fault-tolerance of Erlang, without having to add too much external dependencies to scale out our Ruby stack product.
I'm very enthuastic about clean code and TDD. I've developed a few small android apps and otherwise microservices in java 8. I'm addicted to (un)conferences, meetups, watching conference talks online, or simply reading the classic books about software development. Never stop learning!
Rust is a revolutionary language that is growing and improving fast. I am proud to have been promoting Rust in my own company leading to incredible results. It covers low-level programming while offering high-level abstractions which for systems developers, it's a blessing.
I've been a Java programmer for quite some time and recently started converting some of my code over to Kotlin. The results have left me with a deep appreciation of the language, which is both clean and concise. It's also nice that it allows for an incremental conversion.
Everytime I wanted to do some quick automation I always choose python because it is simple, relatively easy, and fast enough to do the automation. This has saved me a lot of painful time if I were to do it myself manually. I also like java and currently learning some C.
(He/him pronouns). I've been a Ruby developer for a couple of years (since 2016ish), and I've been helped along immensely by friends and the community--I'm looking forward to paying that back! When I'm not working with code, I'm probably playing or making tabletop RPGs.
I'm a Canadian (based in Chicago) freelance golang, C and python developer working on projects within the gaming, finance and data-science worlds respectively. My favorite freetime task is coding challenges and I'm more than happy to help people talk through solutions!
I like Python because it's so simple to understand it and it can read like well-written prose. Besides it's a real swiss army knife, you can use it for almost everything. Yet, it takes some time to learn writing pythonic code, but I'm happy to help you with that!
I love Ruby for its expressiveness, readability and the awesome community. I learnt a lot of good practices in Ruby while solving exercises on exercism and later started using it to mentor people in my workplace. Now I am really excited to do it on a wider scale!
I'm a developer for 4 years and the last year I have been working with Ruby. Exercism is a great help to get over the C and C++ habits and move to the Ruby way of thinking. Likewise, it makes me so happy to be able to give back to this community as a mentor!
It didn't take long for rust to become my favorite language, and I want to help others learn it, and love it like I do! I've been coding in rust since 2013, and it's been amazing seeing the language change and evolve over time, and become better and better.
I'm a physicist and hobbyist programmer. I've been a Rust enthusiast since shortly before 1.0. I love Rust for its speed and safety, its typesystem, clean design, cargo and overall focus on correctness that help me offload so much worry on the compiler.
I have had an interest in functional programming for years, and Elixir has been my outlet for a while now. I love being able to program without hidden side effects, and I love the way functional programming changes the way you think about program flow.
After studying English, I took the road less traveled, which somehow led me to become a developer. Perhaps because code can be poetry and applications are the built on creativity, logic, and language, I've continued exploring and haven't looked back.
Hi, there! I've been working with Ruby since 2015 and am a big fan of the community and mentorship. My previous career was in Music/Education and I find those skills have helped me be a better teammate and teacher. I look forward to working with you!
I love Ruby because it delivers on its promise: programmer happiness. As a programmer, I'm happy when my code is intention revealing, easy to reason about and easy to change. I have used Ruby to build 4 startups over 12 years and I'm not done yet.
An enthusiastic programmer who enjoys to explore various aspects of the computer industry. Worked on areas ranging from ASIC & FPGA based hardware design to Software Development in softwares like ruby, C, C++, perl,scheme, common-lisp and rust.
I developed a curiosity towards Go through wanting to better understand the tools we used at work. I was pleasantly surprised to see how straightforward the language specification is. I’m keen to learn and to help others on their Go journey.
I work as an Android developer on one of the oldest apps in the UK Play Store. We have been using Kotlin as our primary language for around a year now, and I'd like to help others develop their skills while at the same time developing my own.
I have been writing F# professionally for over a year, including one relatively large project. I like the pragmatic approach it takes to functional programming. I also enjoy working with other similar languages such as OCaml, Elm and Haskell.
I love everything about Elm. My days are spent programming in Elm as a professional, my weekends are spent working on open source Elm projects and packages. I'm a member of the Elm core team and you can always find me on the Elm-lang Slack!
I've had a fair share of help over the years, and like to pay it back when I can. I enjoy using C# personally and professionally, partly due to the powerful development tools available, and partly due to the comprehensive .NET framework.
I work as a software engineer full time. One of the larger codebases I work in is a set of microservices written in Go. I'm not an expert in Go, but I've started to figure out my way around it. Happy to help others trying to learn more!
C is my favorite programming language because of the simplicity it offers and the fact that you can really be in 'total' control of programs written with it. I've programmed in C professionally, at school and for many personal projects.
