Max Fierke

Software Engineer. From the Kernel to the Web.


    I reside in Minneapolis, MN. I'm currently pursuing a Computer Science B.A. at the University of Minnesota.

    Here are few things about me:

    • I like building things.
    • I'm a bit of a polyglot programmer. I have my languages I really like for certain purposes, but I love trying out new languages.
    • If one can put Linux on it, I've put Linux on it (and may have even helped put Linux on it, or improved the state of Linux on it).
    • I'm a caffeine-powered organism.
    • GitHub and Rap Genius are my favorite applications.
    • I'm attracted to anything having to do with cryptography. I love me a nicely designed Feistel network block cipher.
    • My favorite text editor is Sublime Text.
    • My favorite thing to do, besides programming, is watch comedy (standup, sketch, and sitcom).
    • I'm a huge Monty Python fan, which is one of the reasons why I'm fond of Python.
