Software


Open-sourced software

tools and programming, developer libraries

On this page is my collection of open-sourced software and libraries that are available and public on GitHub. My programming focuses mainly on Go and the web with JS, CSS, and HTML.

I have been using Go since its pre-v1.0 beta-release days, initially attracted to its minimalism, built-in tooling, strong static types, compile, and operational speed. It is the polar opposite of the vast flexibility, expressiveness, and confusion offered by JS, its runtimes and the many, ever-evolving frameworks.
