Me around the internet:
I am a freelance translator, web developer, single father, runner & cyclist, artist, cook, poet, musician, and Free Software developer, and more…
I have Type II diabetes, and am currently under treatment for a low-grade astrocytoma or glioma (cancerous brain tumor).
Support me in the American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure.
First, I speak 4 languages, being English, French, Portuguese and Spanish.
Second, I program (or am learning to program) in numerous computer languages, including, but not limited to:
- Tcl/Tk - the Tool Command Language, my first, and favorite programming language, very easy to learn, great for making useful GUI programs.
A very powerful and versatile language, I don't understand why it isn't as popular as some others, although, in some industries, it IS widely used.
It's just not as sexy with the kids these days, like python and ruby, although, I have to say, ruby, to me, seems to borrow a lot from it (ruby, to me, looks like the bastard child of tcl and perl).
I'm finding now even greater utility by marrying TCL with SQlite databases.
- Bash - the Bourne Again Shell, a sysadmin's Swiss Army Knife.
- Python - just scraping the surface with this one, so far.
- Ruby - A dynamic, open source programming language with a focus on simplicity and productivity. It has an elegant syntax that is natural to read and easy to write.
I've barely begun playing with this one, too.
- Lua - a powerful, fast, lightweight, embeddable scripting language.
- Perl - a highly capable, feature-rich programming language. Also just barely scraping the surface of this one.
- CLisp just barely played with this one a little bit, but it makes pretty code.
- and, of course, I can write up some html and css for web, front-end design.
It should be left quite clear that I am nothing like an expert in programming with any of these languages, but only an enthusiastic learner. Programming, and learning to program is FUN!
