Hello and welcome! My name is Jay. I am a programmer, currently living in Seoul, South Korea. I am passionate about most things related to programming (in particular, server-side development). My passion lies mostly in computer science, programming, learning and trying new things as well as listening to others talk about their experiences as a developer. Below is a picture of me coding and chilling at a cafe in the Hongdae area of Seoul.
Update: I quit my job at the end of January 2019. I am currently pursuing my masters in Computer Science at Seoul National University.
Thecodingdelight was made to challenge myself to start writing more about my passions, to share knowledge with those around me and to freely provide content to those that are trying to learn. It is also a way to keep myself accountable in my journey of learning and discovery. At the same time, this site exists to part knowledge and guide programmers or aspiring programmers in understanding key concepts. I will do my best to follow up on comments and feedback (if it is doable and relevant) as soon as possible.
Most of the blog posts will be centered around the following topics.
Update: I am aiming towards resuming blog posts some time in 2019. Although I will still post on data structures and algorithms, some of my newer posts may be centered around data science, particularly, machine learning, deep learning and reinforcement learning. I will try to keep those topics as intuitive and less "mathy" as possible :).
The following section will be dedicated towards asking common questions about the website and about me. Feel free to leave a comment or email me a question. I might actually post up the answer to the question the next time I update the blog. Feel free to be creative with the question. However, if the question is too creative to the point
Forgive me for sounding like a geek, but most of my spare time goes into writing blog posts, reading books on programming. Occasionally, I like sports like tennis, League of Legends, ride a bike to cool my head.
I am also a big fan of 찜질방 and 노래방 (karaoke). Unfortunately, not too many people around me enjoy that kind of stuff. So I just stick to my books *insert awkward laugh.
All the source code is uploaded onto my GitHub account. Occasionally, I upload code that is not related to the blog. Unfortunately, since most of the code that I work on is proprietary, my GitHub account is relatively empty. One of the other reasons for starting this blog was to challenge myself to write some more code in my downtime and populate my empty GitHub profile.
