What is your current background in programming?

I recently heard the term "polyglot programmer," and I think it's pretty well suited to me. My favorites right now are Java and Python, for very different reasons. If you asked me to choose a favorite library/framework, I'd say all of them. I mean that. My main direction is towards programming virtual agents, and to that (and similar) end(s), I've been in a period of (outrageously) intense study the past 8ish months. In support of those studies, I've been scrambling to learn as many relevant meta-productive tasks as I can delineate. For instance, last night I was reading a bit about the EMF and I'm very interested in learning more about this world of epic code generation. I'll likely start heading in that direction next. Also recently, through learning Python-Fu, I discovered something I wasn't expecting: a form of visual art that actually makes sense to me.

What do you plan on working on each week?

I'll start working on learning and playing with the Eclipse EMF and JBoss Forge, as I've just discovered these technologies and am excited by their potential. This will be working towards the Eclipse AMP and building a multi-agent market simulator. I also may be working on some JavaFX thing or another, judging a beauty contest of python gui plugins, or building my graphics scripting library: Scott-Fu.

Are you able to assist others with their endeavours?


Do you like coffee? I assume yes, but if you like something else, tell us your favourite drink!

Oh god yes.
