How did you hear about Codetown?
I went to a JUG meeting, and I found out there's a "facebook for coders". I don't have a facebook, but a facebook for coders doesn't sound so bad.
What are your main interests in software development?
right now, I'm just interested in learning as many languages as I can as well as I can (I'm decent at C++ and Perl, and I can say hello world in Java, Python, Lisp, Haskell, JavaScript, Ruby, and C#), and getting some practical coding experience under my belt. as far as projects go, I'm not good enough at either relevant language (C++/C#) to program games for my phone, but that's probably what I'll end up doing a lot of over the next year.

well, that and learning some of this new XHTML stuff (last time I wrote HTML was almost a decade ago. I hear it's changed) and figuring out CGI.pm, so I can put up a web site.
Do you have a website?

Anything else you'd like to add? Where do you live? (optional!)
I don't care what anyone says, I still think JavaScript.onMouseOver is a funny way to play internet pranks on people.
