Please refer to the about page for general information, and refer to the resume page for my education, projects and experiences. This is a list of mostly silly questions, just for fun. Let me know if I can some new Q/As.
Q: What is your favorite IDE/editor?
A: Jetbrains IDE (IntelliJ IDEA/WebStorm), and sometimes vim (using an IDE is overkill for a lot of tasks, and vim does text-editing the best).
Q: “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.
Q: Do you stream on Twitch?
I have some experience with streaming, as I once built a “Twitch Plays Hearthstone” channel, with a fully automated votes->play loop. I stopped after a few days because the viewers had to play with a 8-12 second delay (old twitch days…), which proved to be too much to play competitively, even for a card-game. Back to the question: I currently don’t have the time to keep up a consistent stream schedule, but I would like to stream programming when I can allocate the time for it.
Q: Do you have a Patreon/Kickstarter/whatever?
Donations are most welcome in the form of FOSS contributions to my projects.
Q: What are your PC specs?
Laptop (For everyday work, 2017):
HP Zbook Studio G3 (CPU: Intel i7 6700HQ, GPU: Quadro M1000M 4GB, Storage: 250 GB SSD)
Q: 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 and functional programming!
Q: What is your favorite game?
Chess… …a computer game? Hmm… …computer chess, Hearthstone, rogue-likes, click-adventures, procedurally-generated and incremental games.
Q: Can you help me with this — open source — project?
Sure, I guess I can take a look; tweet me a link?
Q: Your GitHub account was created in 2016, what did you do before then?
You can’t easily distribute software and pay for servers etc. if you are “not old enough”, so I used different anonymous aliases before 2016.
Q: When and how did you start programming?
