I'm a mostly self-taught programmer using C & C++ as my primary coding languages, tools such as Make, Autotools, Vim, and the Zsh shell. My interest in coding started in my early teens as an inspiration from my grandfather, who worked in a lab setting doing physics simulations. Up to my mid teens, I used coding as a tool for doing calculations for mathematics and physics (which were my then-primary interests). I stopped programming around 16,17 and now at 20 have just started to get back into it. I support FOSS software, although lean towards a BSD style of licensing and coding, with the plan to jump back onto a FreeBSD system soon.
