Not a software developer in the sense that I write software as part of my job or otherwise get paid to do so. Also, not a developer in the sense that I write software for others.

I write software for myself, often for no other reason than that I want to. (What I call recreational programming.)

Actually, I’m currently forcibly confined to recreational programming, as I’m looking for a job.

My current go-to language is Ruby, but I’m interested in all sorts of other languages as well: Newspeak, Seph, Ioke, Self, Io, Slate, Reia, Cobra, Fortress, Sapphire, Haskell, Scala, Clojure, Racket, Go, Fancy, Poison, and many more.

lol BTW: the term "personality" for that kind of thing is standard. It is also used in Linux for example, which in the '90s added personalities for all sorts of proprietary Unices (e.g. SCO) so that you could run your existing apps without recompiling. Now that it is obvious that Linux has "won", the proprietary Unices do the same (AIX 5L, where the "L" stands for "Linux", HP-UX 11i, where the "i" stands for "integration with Linux"). Also, most BSDs have a Linux personality and in Dragonfly BSD even the Dragonfly part is a personality (similar to NT).

Fortunately, the Alpha didn't vanish completely. AMD licensed the 21264 EV6 FSB and it became the basis for the FSB of the Athlon XP (Socket A) and still lives on in the Geode NX. And of course the SMT implementation in the Pentium4, and now the Core i7, comes from the 21464 EV8.
