What area of UX or UI or mobile would you like to learn more about?

Web design and Android are my 2 biggest interests at the moment. I think I would really enjoy learning a bit about complex animation as I enjoy working with complex mathematics.

Are you already in the area of UI and UX?

Not yet (technically), although I am touching on it in my spare time.

Tell us a bit about yourself.

In my spare time, I work with Android and RoR, and dabble around in Haskell as a curiosity. I really enjoy working on project Euler problems. They often tend to ask about a very specific case, but I enjoy finding the most general solution to a problem that I can (that is the best way to truly understand the properties of a particular problem's domain, after all). I also find it intensely gratifying to be able to use computer languages in an artistic way, such as the design of user interfaces (as this group is dedicated to). I have never written an actual algorithm for animation (I have mostly in the past just used some basic jQuery and javascript), but I would jump at the opportunity to learn about/practice developing algorithms for more complex animations.

Introduction

I first got interested in computer programming in college while I was a chemistry major. I changed to a computer engineering curriculum and have since been working my way gradually up out of the embedded world and into the cloud.
