I'm a student in further education in the UK.
My whole life has been made up of learning and tests, getting good GCSEs, A levels, and finally now being at the University of Cambridge as a student of Computer Science. It's pretty cool, really.
Over my time here I've learnt a slew of programming languages, from normal ones like Java and C to really obscure ones like Standard ML and Prolog. I more than sympathise with how Jick sometimes comments about his unusual code segments on the podcast, and how parts of the code are fragile and nasty - I'm guilty of more than a few crimes against programming myself, too!
