My name is Rodrigo and there are two pillars in my life that drive most of the work I do:
  • I love knowledge
  • I'm passionate about problem solving
This explains why I spend so much time reading about all sorts of topics, writing about them, giving workshops, etc.
It also helps explain I am so interested in mathematics and programming.

Currently, Python 🐍 and maths are my secret weapons.

I just wrote a short TIL on how I do code syntax highlighting in PowerPoint for my programming talks.
At first, I did it by hand... And it was painful!
Then, I discovered that if you copy code from an IDE like Visual Studio Code and paste it directly into PowerPoint, the syntax highlighting from Visual Studio Code is preserved!

I published a new problem on my blog:

I have 100 light bulbs, each with its independent switch. All switches are in a room, all light bulbs in another room.
How can I find out which switch is associated with which light bulb?
And how can I do this minimising the number of trips between rooms?

The problem statement can be read here and people who send me their solutions will be included in the list of solvers.

I went back to my blog article that challenged you to find the centre of a circle in just 5 lines and I edited it to add my proposed solution.

You can find the challenge here and an animated solution here.

Wordle is the game of the moment and APL is a programming language from the 60s that is array-oriented. This makes it a great language to try and solve Wordle in!

In the article I just published, I walk you through solving Wordle with APL while showcasing the convenience of the array-oriented features that APL provides.

You can read the article here.

In preparation for my talk β€œWhy APL is a language worth knowing”, I published an article on my blog that is supposed to be a written version of my talk.

In this talk/article,Β  I hope to convince you that learning a language that is radically different from all the other languages you know isn't harmful. Learning a language that is radically different from all other languages you know won't scatter your knowledge or spread your brain too thin. In fact, learning a language that is radically different from all other languages you know will cement your programmingΒ  knowledge, helping you build bridges between topics you didn't even know were connected.Β
