I'm an 18 years old business-IT student and a computer (science) enthusiast.

My biggest interests are reverse-engineering, compilers and distributed systems and have been for as long as I can remember. I look forward to working with those technologies some day.

Currently I'm studying Go and TDD on my free time. I've set myself a goal of getting an idea for some server application and have a working and tested prototype by February.

comment Is it possible to write software that doesn't need to be continually modified?
Sure if there are a lot of changes, some tests might need changing too but it's not like the software changes from word processor to web server. Your "new document" feature will still create a new function and its tests should still be valid.

@NathanFarrington: I believe there's a huge difference in how the hardware/software specification and design is made. Most hardware manufacturers have most likely better specifications for what they make than a software developer whose client can only say "I want a program that does this!" It's pretty much guaranteed to get new features and what not.

This doesn't directly what I asked but this explanation is definitely worth an upvote. Git just became a lot more understandable!

+1, especially for "Go looks like it mixes useful ideas from several different domains together in an elegant way"

Because I haven't used anything beyond commits and diffs, I referred to everything else as advanced because they are a bit more advanced than those. Feel free to replace 'advanced' with something more appropriate. :)
