I've only had a very small amount of formal education in computer programming, but over the years I've been teaching myself more, using the wonderful knowledge pool provided by free and open source software. And some books.

As of 2010, I'm a Debian Developer, maintaining the xword and planner-el packages.

makes a boy of you... //
-- John Ashbery, from "From Estuaries, from Casinos" (Hotel Lautréamont 1992)
