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 find Scala to be both a beautiful and useable language. I like that you can use clear and concise functional paradigms, while still enjoying the benefits of object orientation and JVM interoperability.
