I am now a grad student at the University of Ottawa. I recently graduated with a Master's in Computer science from the University of Ottawa, after earning an Honors Bachelor of Science with double majors in Computer Science and Logic and a minor in Math from the University of Toronto. Most of my Saturday nights are spent writing hobby code (right now, my fascination is with Genetic Algorithms) - which speaks to the lack of my social life.

I love to learn new things. Paradoxically, don't enjoy reading more than 10 pages per new topic (much to my disappointment). I have therefore developed an ability to speed read - something that the readability and speed read it bookmarklets have helped with.

Author of Pyvolytion in the python package index (which I talked about at PyConCA, 2012 and published it in the IEEE), co-author of cfg in the python package index.

I can be found on Twitter, Google+, Careers 2.0, and LinkedIn

comment Monitor screen size and programming ease
Beyond a certain threshold (subjective), bigger screens make you turn your head to see everything on a window. Some people can see everything, even when sitting close to the monitor, but not many others can

comment What can I gain from examining others code?
Runtime is not always part of the spec, but should be considered when writing code

comment Is it a bad idea to list every function/method argument on a new line and why?
True. However, it's not always an issue with variable names. It's more to do with long variable names, arguments with default values, etc

comment Artificial Intelligence Code?
I know that there have been /some/ improvements with the networking aspects in the recent past (like 2-3 years). But I'm intimately familiar with neither the nature of your troubles, nor the nature of these advances. Sorry I can't be of more help

comment Artificial Intelligence Code?
Lisp and PROLOG are the way to go. They are used widely in AI. I know that PROLOG has a bunch of libraries to help, although I don't have exact names
