A fast learner with a deep understanding of classical, functional, and procedural programming. Learning a new language is usually more syntactical than functional. Good personal skills with the ability to explain complex computer logic to anyone (usually with diagrams). I enjoy contributing to the open source movement because it facilitates the study of other peoples code, logic, and algorithms to gain deeper understanding and perspective of your own.
