my slonksite

hi, i'm Rain, or slonkazoid
i write code and break computers
also see my blog


programmer, linux user, overall nerd

i write web apps, cli tools, bots, and such. you can find some of them over at the projects page.
my favorite languages are rust and bash, but i can write js/ts, c, c#; and to a lesser extent, java (minecraft modding), python, brainfuck, php, and lua.
i'm a quick learner. i like to step out of my comfort zone and try out technology i have little to no experience with. i make learner projects with new stacks and i come out more knowledgable in the end.

my favorite web stack is rust (language) + tokio (runtime) + axum (web framework) + hyper (http server) + askama (templating engine) + sqlx (database driver) + postgresql (database) + lighttpd (proxy/web server) + linux (os) + aarch64 (architecture). and musl if you care about libc.
also experienced with php (7, plain), express.js, mysql & mariadb, sqlite3, nocodb, electron, ejs, and i'm always willing to learn.

i also play video games. my all-time favorites are, in no specific order after the second, team fortress 2, celeste, deep rock galactic, ultrakill, minecraft, half-life, and counter-strike.

i am fluent in english and turkish (native). i am (not actively) learning german. i was also learning russian at some point.

my cat's name is karamel.

did you know? this website has a total of 0 bytes of javascript
in my opinion, simple websites like this shouldn't require a powerful system to render. i want my site to be accessible on an old smartphone, on your 14 year old computer, curl | bat -l html, a new high-end computer, and the sbc you found on the sidewalk.
