Welcome to hpEthan1793


Who am I?

Hi, I'm Etham, a grade 9 student from South Africa. I started programming in Grade 7 and since then it has been one of my greatest passions. I have recently been working on some web-dev projects for the past couple years, and am learning something new every day.

I wish I could say that I am a self motivated figure, however this is sadly not the case.

If I were given a school project, I would most definitely procrastinate and maybe start doing it the day before its due. (What can I say, I like to live dangerously)

List of Technologies I am familiar with:

  • C++
  • Python
  • HTML
  • CSS + Bootstrap framework
  • Javascript + NextJS and ReactJS frameworks

Other Interests

  • I am a big fan of chess. I started playing it when I was 10 and have loved it ever since. My favorite players are Anish Giri and Fabiano Caruana. If you want to challenge me, I play on lichess.org as hpEthan1793. (Never really been a fan of chess.com)

  • I enjoy speedcubing, a sport involving solving a variety of combination puzzles, the most famous being the 3x3 puzzle or Rubik's Cube, as quickly as possible. For most puzzles, solving entails performing a series of moves that alters a scrambled puzzle into a state in which every face of the puzzle is a single, solid color. These specific moves are reffered to as algorithms. Here is the video tutorial I first watched when I learned how to solve the cube. (Creds to Dan Brown for the tutorial)
