Hi, I'm Hannah, a trans woman in my late 20s.
I'm a software developer just outside London, UK, working mostly in C++. For my own projects I really like Python, and I've been playing around with Rust.
I'm into a bunch of videogame genres, tabletop games, electronic music, space science, sci-fi, fantasy, and queer fiction.
Selfies and photos of my attempts at nail art are kind of inevitable.
Hi I am Konrad a.k.a Conny. I am a software engineer and I make #Android Apps for a large retail chain in #Vienna four days a week. (Something gotta pay the bills.) In my free time I try to organize with other people against our far-right government. When Im not doing that I maintain @Tusky, a Mastodon client for Android. I also like to paint with watercolors and travel around Europe. Here is a picture of me in front of the Belvedere in Vienna.
