I program from when I was 13. In order of appearence: Basic, Pascal, C, C++, Visual C++, Microsoft Visual C++, Python. I now mostly program Python. I find it better than any language I have ever programmed. From an academic pov, I come with a degree in Math, and work in the academic making mathematical models of biological system. Mostly in the area of Artificial Chemistries, Artificial Life and Systems Biology. I am glad to be here. I also have a blog ( blog.pietrosperoni.it ), where I occasionally discuss related topics. A series of posts on how to use tags became quite famous in its time.
