Hey, so I’ve been getting a large amount of repeat questions. So I’ll be doing my best to provide some answers without having to repeat the answers too much!
Not finding a question here? Check out Q & A Part 2 here.
How old are you?
I am 20.
Where are you from?
Seattle, WA. Born and raised!
Are you going to school for CS?
No I went 2 1/2 years for Astrophysics. I really enjoy Astrophysics.
What languages do you know?
Why C over C++?
I feel the language is more restrictive in a beneficial way for me. A lot of the time it can be very punishing to mess up. Also I have a more direct understanding of what is going on behind the functions I’m calling vs where there is some level of ambiguity with C++/Java. Also, C is really fast.
How long have you been programming?
Since I was about 5. Really wasn’t coherent until around 8/9/10 (whatever number). So really I just say my whole life, but effectively about 10-11 years.
What IDE do you use?
For Java: Eclipse (it’s old, I know it)
For everything else: None.
By none I mean I use a text editor. The quality of a program isn’t directly reliant on the IDE you use. For text editors I use vim.
I guess that sort of answers most of the frequently asked questions. If you have more questions, I guess just ask them in my stream and at some point I’ll realize it’s been repeated.
