Hey there! () :blobheartcat:

I'm a software developer. I make video games and FOSS libraries in my spare time. I am a Linux enthusiast, and I really like old arcade games! :blobtea:

Usually I try to keep my posts light and happy on this account. Occasionally I will post a lot about projects I am working on, but I try to lock the text dumps under CWs to not hurt your timeline. :patcat:

!! OwO !!

Oh yeah, uhh - Still interviewing for jobs. Probably very few posts from me until I find a new gig. ;_;

Learning Vulkan today, it's pretty cool! I have a triangle so far, but I'm hoping to have a full model rendering by the end of the night.

For those of you entering into the tech industry, I highly recommend that you take practicing for tech interviews seriously. It is very stressful, and it takes practice to be a good interviewer.

Anyways, update on the job hunt for those who are curious. I have one coding test this week and a few phone calls lined up. Next week I have some of my first real, actual interviews (like on-site stuff). I did one 1-hour test last week, and while I knew how to solve it I got bogged down with some implementation details and edge cases and wasn't able to finish the test in the allotted time. :/

Wish me luck! :bun:

Feeling inspired by @bVork to post my favourite controller I own. The old Neo-Geo CD controllers have a super cool clicky sound to their 8-way directional pad. It sounds/feels super satisfying to use.
Bought this for an arcade supergun I plan on building, since the wiring would make it easy to hook up to a JAMMA board.

I don't really know what to call all these? Some of them don't really have names...

For practice, implementing all the sorting algorithms I know again. So far, I've implemented all the different types of partition algorithms:
+ Lomuto (lower-stable)
+ Reverse Lomuto (upper-stable)
+ Hoare
+ Stable
+ Stable In-Place

It seems almost every viable option filters down to this. Any advice Fediverse? :blobdead:

Hmmmmmm...

Stability, good pay, crappy work.
OR
Unstable, mediocre pay, great work.

This is harder than I expected.

Oof, first coding test and I did not do well... I hope this isn't a sign of worse interviews to come. :(

Oh boy, here we go - job hunts going well. I have a bunch of interviews scheduled. So I guess it is time to practice. :bun:

(The :bun: above is training very hard!)

BitShift boosted

Gonna grab a cofe and then get back to studying for interviews. :blobcatcoffee:

Good Morniu!~ :blobheartcat:

Today, I hope you have a productive day. Stay strong all you out there in the Fediverse!

Here's my CV:

"Can make computer do BIG good! Please give money! :blobcatpawmean:"

Part of the reason I've been so busy lately is I'm looking for a new job. It's so difficult because I haven't _really_ specialized?

I mean, I do a lot of stuff. I guess I'd probably say systems programming is what I'm best at.

Anyways, absolutely dreading interviews - I hate interviewing. :blobcatknife:

Good afterniu!~ :blobcatcoffee:

Been busy with many things the past week or so. Lot's of things going on in life! I'm back at my apartment though, so should be able to start posting again. :blobheartcat:

Flights, delays, cancellations, rebooking... I'm so tired. :blurbsleep: 💤
