Welcome to xtendo.org, XT’s personal website.
I’m a namer/engineer living in South Korea. I started programming in 1995. I started getting paid for it since 2008. I’m in Haskell-KR, a Haskellers’ group in South Korea. Until recently I worked at LINE, the mobile messenger company, where I held a Haskell boot camp.
I speak three human languages (English, Japanese, and Korean).
My life is indebted to so many goodwill, so I maintain this web site hoping some people might find the information useful. Feel free to have a look around.
XT the Namer
“My bad. Let’s just stick to the old way. Name doesn’t matter, it’s just for telling a person from another.”
“No, that’s not true. A person’s name is more than a mere proper noun. The name itself is me.”
– The Season of L
I am a namer. Upon contemplating the profound truth of the Universe, my insight pierces through the exterior of each entity, and reaches the essence linked to the perfect phrase – with which I name things like cats.
- Once I named a friend’s cat. May Executor rest in peace.
- I named Versert, an esoteric programming language. If you sense words like versatile and insert, you’re correct; that’s exactly what it’s about. When read in Korean, Versert also sounds similar to beoseot which means mushroom. Mushroom as in fungus. Fungus as in Funge.
- I named Kang Seonghoon’s old laptop sseolmae (“sleigh”).
- I helped naming and choosing the domain name of Craft Codes, an intensely successful local handicraft maker.
- chips is a plugin manager for fish.
XT’s naming service is commercially available.
