About me

I'm a teen software developer who relishes hacking PHP on the Web, C# on his PC and Objective-C on his Mac. I adore math, Jesus, Apple and π, but not apple pie!

While I'm primarily an HTML/CSS/JS/PHP web developer (I've been with HTML/CSS for a decade now!), I'm also getting my feet wet in iOS development with Objective-C, ASP.NET and WPF development with C#, and Flash game development with ActionScript 3.0. Additionally, I know a little Java and Python, but am not considering expanding my knowledge in either right now.

Check out my site. Read my tech blog. Follow me on Twitter (if you dare).

comment Undefined behavior, in principle
@Barmar: If this question is about the philosophy of C++ UB, then it's not a question for our meta, because it's not about the site itself. Whether it is on-topic for this site is a separate issue (it probably isn't on-topic). The intent of this question can only be clarified by the asker - it would be unwise of them to follow community consensus because in actuality it's unclear what exactly is being asked.

comment Why is there no here document syntax in .Net?
Because .NET is not a programming language. It's a framework.

comment Why is it discouraged to create variables on the fly? PHP gives you a Notice Error
Because this is forbidden on almost all other languages. And with good reason.

comment What should I do to get started with Windows 8 app development?
Are you looking to build desktop-style apps or Metro-style apps?

comment What should I do to get started with Windows 8 app development?
Be mindful that Silverlight is closer to Metro and WinRT than WPF is; WPF will mostly be on the desktop. The basic principles of MVVM and XAML still apply; just in subtly different ways.

comment Is it possible to combine XPath and CSS selectors?
Shouldn't this be on Stack Overflow? Anyway, the first thing you need to bear in mind is that CSS was originally designed for HTML, and XSLT and XPath are designed for XML. Two different style languages for two different markup languages. CSS can be used to style XML, and XSLT transforms XML into (X)HTML, but that's probably beyond the scope of all this...
