These are a few of the projects I've worked on over the last two years. Quite a few were written while I was still in my introductory classes, so they tend to be a bit crude.

How did I start coding?

I started coding almost by accident. When I was around 9 years old, a friend of mine who attended the LBJ Science Academy tried to teach me C++ without a computer (we were on a camping trip), and starting with pointers. He confused the heck out of me, and for the next 20 odd years I figured I just wasn't cut out for programming. Fast forward to 2012, when I signed up for a "Programming for Engineers" course. Much to my surprise, the class was a breeze, and I really enjoyed it. Following in my brothers footsteps, I switched my major to Computer Science, and the rest is history (to flog a dead cliche).

What tools do I use?

I do Python and Bash coding using the Vim text editor. I started using it on the recommendation of my brother, and I've grown very attached to it. I use several plugins, based very loosely on SPF13 (link's on the left side of the page). My vimrc is available on BitBucket. Combined with GDB as my debugger, I never missed having an Integrated Development Environment(IDE) until I started working with Java. I now use Intellij for Java and VS Code for Go.

I run Windows 10 at home (with the Linux subsystem), and use a Macbook Pro for work. I used to run various Linux distros (CentOS, Ubuntu, Arch, Fedora) but just got tired of working that hard in my free time.

I use both BitBucket and Github for version control.
