Who Am I
I’m Thomas. A self-taught software developer from Brazil and the
Netherlands who grew up in the Middle East. I started to code at the
age of 9, writing batch scripts
These days my interests lie mostly in CLI development. I take a great joy in writing simple yet highly effective tools to solve problems not only in the easiest way, but also in the most extensible way possible. I think my batch file-renaming utility mmv does a great job at that.
That being said, I also have a great interest in operating systems, shells, and really anything that could be considered remotely low-level. I’m not totally afraid of front-end development, although I did write this site in plain HTML and CSS because modern HTML frameworks are the worst excuses for software I have ever seen.
As for my religious- and political beliefs, let’s make those clear:
- You should indent with tabs and align with spaces
- Emacs is better than Vim
- C is better than C++
- The dominance of VSCode is an embarrassment to the industry
