About Me

I'm Marten Lienen. I like programming and maths. Though I do not like to admit, I cannot deny that I have a weakness for programming languages. At one point or another I have written at least a thousand lines in each of C++, Python, Ruby, PHP, Lua, Javascript, Emacs Lisp, Clojure, Java, Julia, C and have read a book about or dabbled in Rust, Haskell, Common Lisp, Scheme, Scala and Assembler. At the same time I cannot tell you how to find the first occurrence of a character in a string idiomatically in more than two of these off the top of my head.

Since I have seen Citizenfour, I have discovered an interest in privacy and encryption. So from time to time I work on things like adding encryption to my linux setup and eventually this website will get an SSL certificate — when I have this Let's Encrypt thing figured out.
