I'm a native Australian student with experience coding in C++. I'm mostly interested in algorithms and the majority of the coding I do is in conjunction with informatics.
Informatics is a mixture of programming, computer science, maths, problem solving and awesomeness. (For more info see links) Why should you do it? Because it's awesomenessositiful.
