Greetings - Introductions
Hello, I go by Oddisyes (pronounced 'Odysseus'). I'm a junior in highschool living in America. I'm running Debian/Windows, on a desktop, and recently my mom got a new computer so I inherited her macbook pro (which is running macOS). I got a new raspberry pi for Christmas which is running Arch. In terms of ricing, yesterday I just started working on my macbook, and it's already starting to come together. (heres a r/unixporn post of my preliminary progress: https://www.reddit.com/r/unixporn/commen...pornstyle/)
It's been really fun using hammerspoon because I'm fairly proficient in lua and the api is amazing so I've been able to do a lot of atomization I haven't been able to do on debian.
As for non ricing related things my main hobby is programming. I run a programming club at my school and participate in game jams occasionally. My favorite languages are probably c/c++ (tho I tend to stray away from new c++ stuff, templates are scary), lua, lisp and python. I have an aversion to other people code because figuring it out yourself is always more fun than having to learn a new api, or crying because you're getting weird errors that you don't understand because the library your using is so monolithic. I tend to make my projects either use minimal external dependancies, or make sure that the libraries/dependancies I'm using are simple, and managing them won't be my main concern. (a good example of what I'm talking about is I prefer flask to django, and when making games I don't use engines like unity or gotdot, but instead either use SDL2+OpenGL with c or love2d. When I'm not programming I'm getting legend in hearthstone, doing homework, or watching children's cartoons.

This was probably awful and unreadable, but what were you expecting from a highschooler we're all idiots :)
You seem like you'll fit in nicely.

You'll get over that with time. It's a good skill to take the time to learn and read other people's code.

Welcome to nixers.

Welcome to nixers.

when I get older and have to go to college and get a job I'll worry about that, for now I'll just have fun :)
Welcome to nixers Oddisyes.
I don't see any screenshots in that reddit link.
Ahoy there!

Welcome to nixers
Welcome to nixers!

Now all you have to do is put Debian on your MacBook Pro like I did ;)

I actually really like ricing macOS. Hammerspoon is awesome, and I already have a debian machine anyway.
Welcome, hope you'll enjoy it here.

Have to agree with Venam here, can't be stressed enough. Learning to read other peioles code, can olny help you.

What have you done with regards to lisp?
Welcome to nixers and kudos for the good taste in programming languages - C/C++ is lovely. :)
Welcome here and enjoy your stay
