looking for software development work :boost_requested:​ 

Hey, I am looking for software developer work. I am familiar with C, C++, Java, and many other languages, but I learn quickly, and can probably learn the language you use.

I'm fairly experienced in modeling relational databases, working with Qt, Sqlite, Postgres, and SQL Server, SDL, and SFML. My specialty is Linux but I can target just about any POSIX-compliant platform, or Windows, and I aim to write portable code.

I've worked on Plume, a Fediverse blogging platform, Cataclysm Dark Days Ahead, a roguelike game, sqlite_modern_cpp(a c++ abstraction wrapper for sqlite), MuaLu(A lua based muck engine), and more.

I've dabbled in assembly and lower level coding, and would not be adverse to picking it up to work.

I am based in the US, specifically Tulsa.

I am available for contract work or remote work, though I am currently caring for someone who is disabled so I have to be remote, or at least have minimal office days.

You can get in touch with me via DM or through email through VioletWhite@espeon.social

I developed a script to generate anonymous email addresses over Tor (or any proxy configuration you want): anonfiles.com/neLfc753qf/tmpma

It relies on proxychains for proxying traffic anonymously.

(This is a fork. The original can be found at github.com/sdushantha/tmpmail)

I'm developing a Linux hardening script. The goal is to develop the most secure system possible, while not sacrificing usability. codeberg.org/SalamanderSecurit

Researchers demonstrate the first microarchitectural side-channel attacks that leverage contention on the CPU ring interconnect against Intel CPUs, allowing malware to pilfer sensitive data from modern processors.

"The Mobile Performance Inequality Gap, 2021" by @slightlyoff infrequently.org/2021/03/the-p

Another great rundown of devices, browsers, and how to set web performance targets in 2021. It's interesting and depressing to see how little Android performance has budged in the past few years.
