Hi, I'm Tina!
I'm a programmer and security enthusiast. I've been writing software for most of my life, and breaking software for nearly as long. I enjoy writing everything from C to Haskell, and I enjoy helping others find joy in computing even more.Beyond software, I'm an avid baduk player, a retro game speedrunner, and a lifelong lover of both listening to and creating music. Expect me to write about any of these topics here.

Let's discover what problems monads help us solve and how they fit together with I/O in Haskell---by exploring these concepts in Ruby.
