About

I work -or have worked- with:

  • Go/Golang (weapon of choice ATM)
  • NoSQL: Couchbase, Cassandra
  • SQL: MySQL, PostgreSQL
  • PHP
  • C (ANSI C99)
  • Perl & Bash
  • current OS's: Linux (Slackware, Fedora)

I don't like:

  • Java
  • Solutions that are needlessly complex
  • COBOL
  • Answers with Regular expressions to solve a problem that didn't require Regex's
  • Java

Stuff I find to be true:

  • Java is the new COBOL
  • If your solution relies on more than 3 regular expressions at any given time, you're part of the problem.
  • 'Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.' — Brian Kernighan
