I write wordplay-ish text adventures for fun. I use Python to create regression testing scripts and also to find word patterns. http://andrewschultz.itch.io has my portfolio. Threediopolis, Fourdiopolis Shuffling Around, A Roiling Original, The Problems Compound, Ailihphilia and Very Vile Fairy File. They're written in Inform 7, which helped me understand object-oriented programming very nicely.
I mostly lurk on StackOverflow, liking questions that I was a bit too scared to ask or didn't have time to ask. I feel smart when I can edit a good answer that just needs a bit of touching up. It's a bit of a relief to see how many people had my question before I did. I've learned so much.
