looking for software development work :boost_requested:โ€‹ 

Hey, I am looking for software developer work. I am familiar with C, C++, Java, and many other languages, but I learn quickly, and can probably learn the language you use.

I'm fairly experienced in modeling relational databases, working with Qt, Sqlite, Postgres, and SQL Server, SDL, and SFML. My specialty is Linux but I can target just about any POSIX-compliant platform, or Windows, and I aim to write portable code.

I've worked on Plume, a Fediverse blogging platform, Cataclysm Dark Days Ahead, a roguelike game, sqlite_modern_cpp(a c++ abstraction wrapper for sqlite), MuaLu(A lua based muck engine), and more.

I've dabbled in assembly and lower level coding, and would not be adverse to picking it up to work.

I am based in the US, specifically Tulsa.

I am available for contract work or remote work, though I am currently caring for someone who is disabled so I have to be remote, or at least have minimal office days.

You can get in touch with me via DM or through email through

Since it's about damn time that we redo our introduction:
Hi, we're Violet. We're a bat/fox(either or) from the lower northeast, generally doing a lot of programming or shitposting, musing about our life, getting far too angry about things we largely can't do much about...

We're a queer trans woman, plural, and an utter disaster, so, :)

Uh, yeah, we're still not better at this after a year of using fedi but not writing an introduction since the beginning.

Feel free to say hi, we don't bite x3

in relation to all the different gender memes 

It's wonderful that people can have such expansive experiences with their gender identity, and those that do absolutely should have whatever fun they feel like teasing the word gender into new, confusing, or just funny situations.
Our Gender is barely worth noting. We're a girl, and so much of what we do isn't unique to being a girl.
It's good being a girl.
It makes us happier than what we were before.

It's also valid too not feel so included with those jokes, where gender is this all sprawling complex over your identity(we do make those jokes though)
For us, it feels the other way around, identity is so connected to our gender and there's so much more there beyond that glowing little pocket of gay that focusing just on that feels wrong.
So, all these words to say, it's valid to not have gigantic takes or essays to write about your gender.
The whole of you is a no less fertile ground for discovery of who and what you are.

bad bizarre obscure programming nonsense 

I drink from my mug with the international MUF standards association logo on it. Boot up my laptop with a witty MUF snippet on it and crack my hands, "Time to write code that will make my life bad three hours later when the user I hate finds a bug in it and then starts to mansplain at me about some problem in my code."

I log into mudlet and potato and start the fun of balancing doing bad ero-RP, and coding. A notification dings and I see that that code already broke, and I wonder why I don't have that person blocked.
"Hexyyyy!" They say. My staff alt being called Hexaferrum, this makes sense.

They found another problem in the awful slot machine that the game owner had me create as a first project. I grimace, seeing that it's the same fucking problem that I declared fixed a while back. Realizing what had gone wrong, I type in a few lines followed by an announcement that the slot machine is gone because I could not be bothered to care about this creakily broken code. That everything that it had once done had already been placed in more useful and better interfaces which make more sense.

It sucks how much vigilance we feel is necessary to live today.

Have to be skeptical of nearly everything.

Have to be concerned of multiple layers of effects that result from an action.

Maybe we're getting into one of those moods where this is a thing again.

It's not fun and it's really hurting our ability to just enjoy things.

Love to see job listings that have things like "ideal personality traits: Can communicate effectively with a team"

Is that a personality? Is it?

Finally, that story took forever to get out of our head.

And now it scrolls to the widget you collapsed.

It really makes the experience less jarring

We got subtree collapsing to work :)

Now it's possible to clear up the tree view even more :D
