As a hobby, I develop videogames, and I’ve released two so far:
I am inordinately fond of both the Kotlin programming language and command-line utilities. I’ve created a few Kotlin-based utilities that I use pretty much every day:
- kinstall - a utility to manage gradle-project-based command-line utilities.
- tnote - a command-line note taking app.
- glasnik - a command-line REST client (like Postman but with no GUI).
I also enjoy cryptic crosswords and other word games. A long time ago I maintained a library for word pattern searches called Cryptic Muse, and I’ve rewritten it in a number of programming languages since then. When I’m hiring developers, I often use a solver for the New York Times Letter Boxed puzzle as a coding exercise. Here is my solution to that exercise.
