I'm a software/computer engineering double major student at RIT, in Rochester New York. My interests go across many topics, and I haven't quite found my favorite language or frameworks yet. I'm a big fan of Linux, and I do most of my development on a Linux machine.

comment Best projects that illustrate the strengths of the languages they are implemented in?
Dynamic generation of finders is a very good example of this. The actual methods that find models in rails are dynamically generated the first time they're called. When the model gets a call to a method that doesn't exist, it parses the name of the call and generates a method to search the database. Rails "Magic" is awesome!
