My story

I started learning python in high school and moved in to C++ later on. During my time at university I made it my mission to learn different programming languages and got started in web development for a while before focusing my attention on to C, Assembly, Linux BASH scripting and various programming frameworks (mainly in the web development arena)

For years I’ve enjoyed the world of technology and have dabbled in various different aspects and yet have found a way to incorporate my love for music, art and writing into my life.

I’m a writer over at medium.com/@fnb in my free time and post blogs to this website as frequently as possible.

Chat to me about anything, I’m always happy to help. More specifically about technical aspects, how something works, why does it work this way and how can we improve it. I’m always happy to hear about new ways of doing something. Oh and also about music and writing, I have a serious love for both and a terrible blog over at medium.com/@fnb
