Programming, software freedom and Unix


I’m a programmer, student at Oxford University (Maths and CS) and free software “activist”, meaning I bought a T-shirt from fsf.org once and wrote a patch for OpenBSD a few months ago, making me a fully-qualified expert.

These days, most programs I write are either in Python, Haskell or C. Python and C are the easiest languages around, and have so little syntax that anyone could learn all of it in a few weeks. Haskell is pretty easy syntax-wise, but it’s pretty hard for newcomers to pick up (cue terrible monad analogy tutorial).
