My name is Andrew Fallows - I hold a B.S. in Software Engineering from RIT. Currently on the job just outside Philadelphia. Particular areas of interest are programming languages and personal productivity, but I'm still very much in "learn everything, try anything once" mode when it comes to technology.

If you see the name 'kaldrenon' somewhere on the internet, odds are good it's me!

comment How would you know if you've written readable and easily maintainable code?
Show it to your mom. If she can tell what it does, it's readable.

@pablox - that is a very good reason.

Is there a reason you couldn't just have a single name field?

comment At what point can I say I've “learned” a language?
In interviews, you know it if you know it. In the workplace, you know it if Google knows it.

comment Should I continue my self-taught coding practice or learn how to do coding professionally?
codereview.stackexchange.com is the only website I know offhand, although I'm sure there are others. There's a lot of value in having someone review it personally and talking to them one on one, though. Maybe there's a college/university near you with a friendly professor who'd be willing to meet with you? That's the best thing I can think of on the spot - maybe others will have better ideas.

@SoboLAN I give you my permission to do this. I want pictures, though!

comment Reflective practice in programming using keystroke playback
Could you expand on where you expect to benefit from this that differs from, say, reviewing your code? Unless you're specifically interested in improving as a typist, I'm not sure I see what you'd gain from what you're after.
