My name is Ian and I'm 29 years old. When I was 14, I was adopted and my adoptive father was a programmer who took it upon himself to teach me the basics of programming with a little language known as Perl (not really a "little" language, just a figure of speech). I was hooked from the start and I have been programming ever since (fifteen years now, holy mother of god does time move fast!)
I have a Bachelor's degree in New Media, and I'm working on my Master's at the moment. The main languages I typically work with are all C-based (C, C++, Java, C#, PHP), and just a few days ago I decided to teach myself Python. I'm really impressed with this language and I bought the Pythonista app for my iPad (I can write programs on my iPad now, how cool is that?!). Before I started learning Python, I had always just assumed that Python was more for small projects, not for large-scale projects, but now I know that it can be used for quite a large variety of applications. I wish I would have started earlier, but I'm still young, and I learn fast. My goal is to learn every programming language ever made (or at least the vast majority of them).
I'm also a musician and web/graphic designer. I also like writing (short stories, novels, essays, etc). That's me in a nutshell.
Good to meet everyone!
