I’m Jeff Linahan, a software engineer in Maryland. My grandfather first taught me how to program in BASIC when I was in 4th grade. After writing several arcade games in Dark Basic Pro, I started learning C and C++ and studying computer graphics and collision detection. In 2015 I graduated from Villanova University with a master’s degree in computer science. I’m starting this blog to showcase some of my personal projects and post my thoughts.
My interests include physics, economics, psychology, philosophy, theology, video games, ragtime piano, running, progressive rock, and anime.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I read everything and try to respond within a day.
