Hello, world. I am Chun Lin.
I am currently working as a young software engineer at Singapore Changi Airport. As a beginner in programming, I always hope that programming can be cute, at least not something people should be afraid of.
In the past few years, I went to visit some of the high school students in Malaysia with NUS professors and friends during the summer workshops. Even though the students participating in the workshops were willing to learn new technologies, most of them were totally new to programming. Some of them even found coding to be a boring activity. In fact, most of my friends who are not familiar with programming think in that way too.
Thus, I try to find the answer to make programming cute by doing interesting hobby projects and sharing my happiness with them through this blog.
Joy of Sharing
There is a quote that says, “Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half sorrow.” Programming is a joy, especially when there are users who love to use the apps you develop. Thus, it’s a good idea to share with people what I have been doing in my personal projects, what I accomplished, and more importantly, how I achieved them.
Sharing my personal projects, ideas, as well as learning experience also helps to surface them to anyone who may be interested to know more about them. Hence, I really appreciate it if you could comment and tell me what you think about my blog posts.
Anime and Visual Novel
I like anime. I even build apps just to watch anime or to solve a jigsaw puzzle of a visual novel. However, I don’t blog about anime. Firstly, I don’t watch a lot of anime. What I do is just repeating watching my favourite anime. Secondly, watching anime is simply for entertainment. I don’t think there is a need to blog about it. Thirdly, no one should really be interested in what anime I have watched, seriously.
Sometimes you can still see some images from anime or visual novel being used as reference in this blog. There is no need to worry if you don’t understand what they mean. I usually put those images just to make my post cuter only.
