"First to your right, second to your left, sharp right again, and you're there. Good morning."

Apart from reading good books, I have some decades of progamming experience. My main languages are C, C++, Java, Ruby. I do have some knowledge of building software for embedded systems, and some experience in programming mobile devices.
