I (aka malander, real name: Ryan Bastic) have been doing computer programming
since I was eight. I'm now 14, and work for The Conference Exchange,
a small Rhode Island-based company that does web-work mostly revolving around
Perl, CGI, and MySQL databases.. I code or have coded heavily in Perl and
QBasic, and have dabbled in x86 assembly, Pascal, C++, and other languages like
LOGO. As you may be able to tell from the scope of this website, my favorite
language is Perl, though I am starting to learn Ruby.
