I love teaching and instructing people. Nothing delights me more
than to see a person grasp a new thing after I have explained
something clearly and patiently.
As a person I am honest and frank. I like to approach each person as an
individual, and I usually get along well with old and young people alike.

In general, I like to know a bit about many different languages.
I am an experienced programmer in a multitude of programming languages
and a few microcontroller platforms, such as AVR, PIC, 6502, and Z80,
and I have twenty years of experience of using relational databases
such as MySQL in commercial products.
I also enjoy reading source code, and take pride in being good at that.
Here is a concise list of keywords that define
technologies that I work with regularly:
HTML4, CSS2, ffmpeg, MEncoder, Git, GCC, Clang,
GNU, Linux, Debian, Cygwin, xterm, ca65, CIMD2,
microcontroller, hex editor, x86, 6502, asm
Generally, I steer towards the lower-level programming
concepts such as engines, converters and algorithms
rather than high-level concepts such as user interface.

I devote much of my free time to developing and exploring software and software technologies.
I am a hobbyist Linux hacker, as well as a Nao robot developer.
I'm a free software enthusiasist (as per Free Software Foundation definition of "free").
My website is full of online applications, source code and articles that can be used to examine my style.
I also publish programming and gaming related videos at YouTube.
