I enjoy making things work elegantly more than just making them work and I consider myself a very honest and straightforward person. I value empathy and rational thinking. I enjoy learning about and debating ethics and philosophy. What I lack in formal education in these fields I make up for in curiosity and open-mindedness. I'm currently looking to get started with competitive programming and using Exercism to practice. I hope to accelerate people's progression through the Elixir track, as there is currently a huge lack in mentors and I'm sure it's frustrating people to wait many days for their code to be reviewed (although it does prepare us well for the realities of business :P).
I love Ruby and have been using it professionally for more than 10 years. I also have been spending time on how to write a easy to read and easy to extend Ruby code. I am new to mentoring and a non-native English speaker. Please excuse my brevity. If my feedback to you is rude, first I am sorry and second it was not my intention. Please do reach out to me, it gives me an opportunity to learn through feedback for mentoring.
Professional Software Engineer. Whenever I have something I need to automate, Bash is one of my go-tos - its flexibility and interesting syntax make it one of my favorite languages to write. Having direct access to command-line utilities within scripts makes Bash appealing by itself, but the language is so much more than just that. I look forward to helping others learn it!
Considered for a new version of the legacy System I'm working with, a coworker presented Clojure to me and we found early it helps a lot on keeping complexity low with a systemic aproach to software projects. We have used in some prototypes. Still learning all I can of it, I hope I could share some knowledege of it by mentoring and learn at the same time.
After some time working professionally with Python I got the chance to finally build something with Elixir that now runs in a production environment.
I've always been passionate about functional programming because I feel it is more closely related to Mathematics and Elixir has enabled me to rediscover Functional Programming using awesome syntax.
I write software for music and science education, mostly in Clojure but I also enjoy using C, Python and Bash. As a 'professional beginner', my focus is on making small programs that are easy to understand and modify if desired, never considering a topic fully learned until I can confidently explain it to someone else.
I am an experienced developer and research scientist that is passionate about Sciences and Technologies. I love working with teams that want to create the 'possible' out of the 'improbable' while leveraging my creative mind and prototyping/research skills. Simply, I love exploring where no-one has ever been before.
I learned to program on embedded devices, and later moved to iOS development in Objective-C and Swift. Most recently, I've been exploring functional programming in Scala. I'm interested in security principles and applied cryptography. And if I can ever find some spare free time, I would love to try out Rust!
Mohnish is a programmer who cares about - programming as a craft, mentorship, diversity, inclusiveness and empathy. Away from work, he enjoys contributing to open source, blogging, and has even organized Ruby user group meetups in the past. He's also learning more of Elixir whenever he gets an opportunity.
I am drawn to Elm because it is a safe, reliable, and refactorable alternative to building webapps. It's an approachable language that not only supports the dynamic nature of greenfield projects, but it can also be adopted in small steps within legacy apps implemented in other front-end solutions.
Python was my first programming language; I started learning it in school and discovered a passion for the power of programming. I strongly believe that Python is one of the best languages, especially for beginners! I currently specialize in using Python for mathematics, namely numerical analysis.
I chanced upon Elixir back in early 2014 when we were looking out for a replacement stack that is as pleasant and productive to work in as Ruby, while giving us the reliability and fault-tolerance of Erlang, without having to add too much external dependencies to scale out our Ruby stack product.
I am a PHP Developer with 15+ years of experience in a wide variety of industries. I'm a servant leader, a life-long learner and a passionate mentor. I value most the light-bulb moments when, after my explanation, it becames clear something that wasn't understandable just a couple of minute ago
I'm very enthuastic about clean code and TDD. I've developed a few small android apps and otherwise microservices in java 8. I'm addicted to (un)conferences, meetups, watching conference talks online, or simply reading the classic books about software development. Never stop learning!
I love swift! I've been an iOS developer since iOS 3 and developing in Swift for over 2 years now at a large iOS company. I love the community surrounding swift, everyone has been so supportive. I'm hoping to help the developers grow and learn somethings myself along the way as well.
I am a prolific speaker and writer and regularly speak at local user groups and industry conferences. I program mainly in Clojure and Java (my last book was Spring Microservices in Action). I have spent the last 3.5 years writing Clojure code for a cloud-based telephony company.
Part of Osu! videogame dev community, develops third-party AI that creates maps for that game named 'Osu!Automapper', written in python. Have strong interest on UI/UX design and machine learning. Professional in Python and Java. Watches anime, especially ones from Trigger studio.
Ruby caught my attention due to its idiomatic constructs and powerful metaprogramming capabilities. I've been working with ruby for half a decade and am trully in love with how elegant the code is. I would very much like to evangelize and enfuse in others this passion for ruby.
I have been writing Elixir for many years now and I find it a pleasure to write and read. Elixir is an extremely productive language with a beautiful syntax and has amazing performance for networked applications. I think it's an ideal choice for any web application or backend.
I've been a classroom teacher in compilers and various functional languages for five years. Having pure functions and isolation of side-effects are fundamental to separation of concerns. Strong, static types, type inference and algebraic types are hard for me to live without.
Rust is a revolutionary language that is growing and improving fast. I am proud to have been promoting Rust in my own company leading to incredible results. It covers low-level programming while offering high-level abstractions which for systems developers, it's a blessing.
Everytime I wanted to do some quick automation I always choose python because it is simple, relatively easy, and fast enough to do the automation. This has saved me a lot of painful time if I were to do it myself manually. I also like java and currently learning some C.
(He/him pronouns). I've been a Ruby developer for a couple of years (since 2016ish), and I've been helped along immensely by friends and the community--I'm looking forward to paying that back! When I'm not working with code, I'm probably playing or making tabletop RPGs.
I'm a Canadian (based in Chicago) freelance golang, C and python developer working on projects within the gaming, finance and data-science worlds respectively. My favorite freetime task is coding challenges and I'm more than happy to help people talk through solutions!
I like Python because it's so simple to understand it and it can read like well-written prose. Besides it's a real swiss army knife, you can use it for almost everything. Yet, it takes some time to learn writing pythonic code, but I'm happy to help you with that!
I love Ruby for its expressiveness, readability and the awesome community. I learnt a lot of good practices in Ruby while solving exercises on exercism and later started using it to mentor people in my workplace. Now I am really excited to do it on a wider scale!
I'm a developer for 4 years and the last year I have been working with Ruby. Exercism is a great help to get over the C and C++ habits and move to the Ruby way of thinking. Likewise, it makes me so happy to be able to give back to this community as a mentor!
It didn't take long for rust to become my favorite language, and I want to help others learn it, and love it like I do! I've been coding in rust since 2013, and it's been amazing seeing the language change and evolve over time, and become better and better.
Python is one of my favorite languages. I fell in love with it seeing the beautiful absence of brackets and semi-colon. I also love it for list comprehension and its extensive use in Machine Learning and Raspberry Pi. I think everyone should learn Python!
I think Python is a great language for doing everyday tasks, improving mental models fundamental to computer science, and implementing really cool projects. I use it every day, and encourage others to start thinking about how it can improve their lives.
I'm a physicist and hobbyist programmer. I've been a Rust enthusiast since shortly before 1.0. I love Rust for its speed and safety, its typesystem, clean design, cargo and overall focus on correctness that help me offload so much worry on the compiler.
