hello! Just came across the FoC community on the fediverse and realized that this is definitely the place to be. I don't have any real professional or academic background in language development or future-of-code adjacent work, but it's something I've been interested in for a long time. I am particularly interested in the struggle between highly interactive, live-coding, "fun" programming and the more serious and verifiable/reliable/compiled processes.
I don't really have any work to share yet
but I think that engaging with the community here can help me remain motivated and interested in projects (working full-time as a software engineer can sap your enthusiasm for fun research stuff outside of work.)
