Son to a programmer and a stock broker, I've been programming since 1983 in many languages, assisting teaching C/Assembly in 1991, using Linux almost exclusively since 1996 (do not ask me to use Win or Mac). I founded wat became a top 1000, raising $2,400,000 in venture capital, reaching a market capitalization of ~$40M after the IPO. In 2010 I discovered a vulnerability in bitcoin that resulted in an immediate bug-fix release.
Security consulting or distributed technology (blockchain / defi / P2P) organizations would likely be good culture fits for me as I've always been passionate about enabling individuals to communicate directly (p2p), I believe it is the future, having designed, written, and applied for a patent for a p2p app/protocol in 2000, and it fits my life long interest in network protocols. 20 years ago I'd have laughed if anyone said we'd still be going to centralized websites by now. I want to help us all move past that. "Information wants to be free." we would say.
Working directly with owners/founders/investors is easier for me as middle management's motives often seem superficial and poorly aligned with the company's, and a startup environment allows me to use my variety of experience.
I've spent about 40 hours in Rust, with a demonstration at multi-source high speed flow controlled UDP file transfer app after my first 8 hours, and full featured at 16 hours . Working on an L1 in Rust, or C, seems like the best skill and culture fit for me.
Blurb about when you should use UDP (like p2p apps)
