Q&A 001

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?

In order of favorites: C, Java, C++, C#, Python, Bash, HTML5/CSS3, Javascript, BASIC

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.
