Max Fierke

Software Engineer. From the Kernel to the Web.

I reside in Minneapolis, MN. I'm currently working on a bachelors degree focused on Computer Science at the University of Minnesota.

Here are a few things about me:

  • I've been writing code since 2006.
  • I live for building and architecting things.
  • I'm the type of dude you can throw into a project without documentation.
  • 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.
  • 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 (stand-up, sketch, or sitcom).
