Kitsune Software

I'm a guy called Ben, I used to trade as Kitsune Software and I used to be based in the UK. Then Brexit was voted for and the Investigatory Powers Bill became the Investigatory Powers Act, and Jeremy Hunt kept his post as Minister of Health despite his abrasive interactions with the NHS. All of that meant I gave up hope that the UK had any value.

I'm a citizen of the EU. I will remain one regardless of the referendum.

I've been coding in one form or another since I was 5 years old (the family had a Commodore 64), going from old-fashioned BASIC in the command-line days to C and REALbasic in the Mac-Classic era, then onwards to Java, Objective-C, Python, JavaScript and Swift in the modern age.

I'm currently learning German, Esperanto, & Greek, writing a novel (currently at around 117,000 words), and looking for work in either Berlin or Z├╝rich. As part of my job hunt, I am working through various Python and Swift courses.

My interests include artificial intelligence, life-long learning, and trying things which other people claim to be impossible.
