Favorite open source companies
I really only know Shell with any confidence but I can read and write a bit of something in a few languages. Here are the one's I'll admit to:
- D - My favorite language, I just wish there were more library's available or it
- Go - I love Go for so many reasons, but most of all for its pedigree. I don't know it all too well just yet.
- Ruby - Outside of Shell this is my preferred scripting language. I find Ruby very fun to write.
- Python - If I can't use Ruby, or there is a better Python library to help me do a thing, I will turn to Python. I love the language, but I am not shy to say that I like Ruby a tad better.
- Nim - I don't know much Nim, but I always have fun playing with it. I like that it feels like Pascal, Python and D all had a baby.
- Pascal - I still practice writing things in Pascal just for fun because it was the first language I ever did anything with and there is many good old books out there that use Pascal
- C# (via .NET Core & Mono on Linux) - I find C# to be a well done and beautiful language if a bit bloated and verbose. I have been playing with Mono for years. C# and Ruby books and docs are what taught me much of what I know about OOP
- Ballroom dancing (learning Swing, Fox Trot, and Rumba (maybe one day I won't need lessons))
- Computer History, especially Unix history
- Etymology & the history of English
- Corporate history
- Psychology (especially human motivations)
