Hi, I鈥檓 Xetera.

I love making ideas come to life with code. I'm a huge fan of functional programming and anti-abuse + trust & safety.

I'm currently really interested in web automation and security. I also enjoy design and writing on the side when I can find the time.

As of I have watched 72 animes
