looking for software development work :boost_requested:​ 

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 VioletWhite@espeon.social

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

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.

we knew we were missing something, it was the sstv bot.

lewd 

you ever miss the taste of someone?

nothing, programming 

:3 drogon is really cool

shitpost 

okay, but what if irods contained a small fm synth implementation that connected over pulseaudio?

so uh, where do people recommend getting binders these days?

boost okay

we have successfully sent off the email and broken the spell of obsessing over the wording. :p

The place we finished up school at only needed like 4 redirects to sign us in.

But like, we like this system more :3

The most amazing thing about the SSO system they have at the university is that it redirects like 30 times.

name stuff 

We changed our name on our insurance, theoretically.

It hasn't updated on healthcare.gov, but like, it's a government website so we'll give it a week or two before we call again :p

re: nothing, work, shitpost 

in the event the method isn't implemented, you will have a result of 200 with the x-thats-real-cool-dude header set to 1

re: nothing, work 

and now the unfun part of the C++ project, setting up the build system and environment :D

You know, we get the impression that amazon didn't write their S3 docs intending them to be used as reference for other implementations of the S3 api.

re: lewd, bad 

"baby batter" is always popular despite being the worst phrase in the english language, but even that pales in comparison to jizz.

imho they should let us log into our work accounts when we're working for them 🙄
