Hey, I’m Fang! I do stuff on the internet.
Writing a biography is hard work, and it probably isn’t your slice of pie anyway, so I’ll stick with my current state of affairs. I’m basically your average twenty-one year old Dutch student, close to getting his Computer Science bachelor’s degree. And that’s all there’s really to it… if we’re staying super shallow.
Computer stuff is kind of my thing. I’d like to say I’ve been into programming for as long as I can remember, but sadly I’m no child prodigy. Still, I picked up web development relatively early, and branched out into software development soon after. I currently have a part-time web development job on the side, and spend my free time doing some amateur game development. (Or goofing off, because we all need those moments too.) It might be cool to make it as an indie game developer one day, but right now it’s all for the fun and experience of it.
Speaking of amateur, I also dabble in writing from time to time. Little scraps, short stories, longer stuff, I do it all. It’s gotten some good responses here and there, but I don’t think it’s anything really special. I’d love to go self-published one day, just for the hell of it, but that still seems like a distant dream at this point. I’m currently content writing for a small audience though, sometimes even just for myself.
Which ties in nicely to this blog! I started Fang Talks back in 2011 as an experiment of sorts. Back then it was a simple Blogger blog, but it quickly grew on me, going through various states, mindsets and designs over the years. One thing has remained constant though, my “one post a day” motto. This streak has never been broken as of yet, and I intend on keeping it that way. This gives me motivation to write, regardless of the end result. Not only has it been great practice, but also a strong social tool, if you can call it that. I’ve met many amazing people through here and made a bunch of really good friends, as weird as that may sound to some of you. Fang Talks has become part of me, and I wouldn’t trade the experiences it has brought me for the world.
Thanks for reading, I hope to see you around!
