I am retired from programming but keep my hand in doing Python and C on Linux.
Creating a QT/Python program for finding duplicate files across drives using an MD5 hash. This does not rely on file names but the actual contents and file size.
Absolutely. I love teaching. I taught c to Bell Engineers when they switched from using nortel to cisco equipment in the 90's at Seneca.
I am a coffee lover. I've even roasted my own beans. My favourite is from the Tarrazu region of Costa Rica. I prefer mild to medium roast brewed in a French press.
I've been programming since I was about 10 years old, started on a PDP6, I am now 55. I've programmed everything from mainframes to minis to micros to embedded, even satellite. machine code to python and a lot in between, I'm a language junky.
I'll likely attend every Sunday as this is the only day I can get away like that. Seem like a diverse mix of talent. Although I was pretty much self involved on what I was working on, I did enjoy a few conversations with some of the members. I'll probably open up and be more social next time (a social programmer, oxymoron?).
