Developer Spotlights : C# is GOD!

Good morning/evening replers, hope you all are safe and doing fine! It's been a long time since we had one of these but regardless, let's do this again - this time featuring @CSharpIsGud!


Introduction

@CSharpIsGud 's real name is Kyle, they are 21 years old and live in the US.

Their programming journey began from Roblox where they started wondering about how games are made and started to learn about it themselves. Then they tried developing games outside of Roblox and that's where they learned C#. It was a long leap from Lua to C# but they still did it. Later on, they felt like trying out some stuff that is more difficult to do than relying on game engines for game development, so they started exploring stuff such as low level programming and OS development. They found it very time consuming to wait for Visual Studio to load up after a Windows boot on a potato PC, that's how they came across repl.it - while trying to find a platform where they could develop programs using C# without having to wait for the long durations, Visual Studio takes to start and the problems of having to deal with all the bloated UI.

Projects

Some of @CSharpIsGud's projects are

ReplOS - They witnessed a lot of fake "Operating Systems" being posted on repl talk for a while (not real operating systems just shells). So, they decided to write a real one using C that works and runs on repl.it itself using qemu.

CS sandbox - As the name suggests, its a program that sandboxes .NET bytecode which means it can sandbox anything like F# and stuff too.

Other Info

Other than programming, @CSharpIsGud also plays the Piano although they are more interested in Violin. They actually got into music when they discovered virtualpiano but they also had a real piano so they decided to use that instead. But they want to learn Violin because it seems more fun since it has a bow. Here is a sample of what @CSharpIsGud is capable of using virtualpiano.

And to end it all, here is a message from @CSharpIsGuid

If one punch man was realistic I would probably be a close match.


The End

And that's it for this week's developer spotlight! If you want to be featured in one of these yourself, be sure to post awesome stuff on repl talk and keep an eye out on your discord DMs and e-mail inbox!
Also, if you have any feedback for the spotlights, be sure to put them in the comments section. Any constructive feedback is always appreciated!

Thank you for reading all this. See you all next time with another amazing developer from the community!
