🧑‍🔬 mostly about tech and biology. i have a love and hate relationship when it comes to software.

About me§

I'm Soc Virnyl Estela (aka uncomfyhalomacro). I like to discuss about Linux, Wayland, and various programming languages such as Julia, and Rust.

I'm a package maintainer for the openSUSE community, mostly Wayland and Rust software.

My main background is biology but I also have exposure to computer science when I was in high school.

I'm a self-taught programmer. These are topics that interest me in terms of recency:

  • databases
  • DevOps
  • compilers
  • functional programming
  • containers

Most of my projects are now hosted either on Sourcehut and Codeberg.

The source of this website is available at codeberg.org.

Other stuff§

If you want to know what I use and what I want to learn, read further down below.

Software and tools I use daily§

Programming Languages I am really familiar with§

Software and things I want to familiarize with§

  • Erlang. I heard about it because of its impressive built-in concurrency support.
  • Go. Learn it since it's used from various companies.
  • Ansible. Notable for DevOps.
