Frequently Asked Questions

About

Please refer to the about page for general information about education, my projects and experiences.

What is your favorite IDE/editor?

Jetbrains IDE (IntelliJ IDEA/WebStorm), I am still learning vim.

“Tabs vs Spaces” /jk

Every project should just set some general contributing guidelines and use tools such as linters and formatters to enforce them, although I do prefer spaces.

Do you stream on Twitch?

I’m planning to do that, but I currently don’t have the time to keep up a consistent stream schedule.

Do you have a Patreon/Kickstarter/whatever?

No. Donations are most welcome in the form of FOSS contributions to my projects ;).

What does ProtoLambda mean?

Naming things is difficult, but generating names isn’t. So I went with a mash-up of “Prototype” and “Lambda”; two words with substantial individual meaning make great names! Besides that, I do like prototyping projects!

What is your favorite game?

Chess… …a computer game? Hmm… …computer chess, Minecraft, rogue-likes, click-adventures, procedural and incremental games.

Can you help me with this — open source — project?

Sure, I guess I can take a look; tweet me a link?

Your GitHub account is from 2016, how did you get so much experience?

You can’t easily distribute software and pay for servers etc. if you are “not old enough”, so I used different aliases before 2016.

When and how did you start programming?

I was around 11 years old or so (late 2009) when I started programming. First PHP, then Java, then Dart, javascript, Android, little bit of C++, Python, and here we are; first year of my CS bachelor.
