Ingy döt Net

Greetings! My name is Ingy döt Net. I am a software artist and computer language inventor. My passion in life is to see computers solving the real world problems that society faces today. To that end, I continually look for new ideas to make software development simpler, while searching for more ways to socialize those ideas.

With over 25 years of work experience, I have been a vocal leader in Open Source Software for the last 20. I love solving problems in ways that benefit not only my current task, but the art of programming in general. I take the most pride in my works that help people of many programming languages at once. I've coined this effort: Acmeism.
