Braden Best

Hi, my name is Braden Best. I am a Hobbyist Programmer that loves to challenge himself. I have been programming on-and-off since 2007.


I have experience with many languages, including:

  • HTML5
  • JavaScript
  • CSS
  • Bourne-again Shell (bash)
  • C
  • ActionScript 2.0
  • C++
  • Python 2
  • Python 3
  • brainfuck
  • PHP

Some more than others. My favorites are JavaScript, Python, C and brainfuck.

Languages I would like to get into/play with:

  • Perl
  • Lua
  • Java
  • Lisp
  • Haskell
  • C#
  • ActionScript 3.0
  • Befunge
  • Piet

Languages I don't want to touch with a 39 1/2' pole (but might be willing to touch with a 40' pole):

  • x86_64 Assembly (only in an embedded environment, I'm not touching syscalls)
  • BASIC (Might play with TI-BASIC. Might.)
  • Malbolge (look it up)
