Kitsune Software

I'm a guy called Ben, I used to trade as Kitsune Software and I used to be based in the UK. For multiple political reasons (Brexit is one of them) I've moved out of the UK and am now working under contract in Berlin.

If, like me, you're moving city, I recommend Working with made it much easier for me to find a job — and I'm not just saying that because I get a referral bonus if you sign up with them using that link: I was given the referral link because they found me a job.

I've been coding in one form or another since I was 5 years old (the family had a Commodore 64; I transcribed programs from the instruction manual while learning to read), going from old-fashioned BASIC in the command-line days to C and REALbasic in the Mac-Classic era, then onwards to Java, Objective-C, Python, JavaScript and Swift in the modern age.

I've spent most of 2018 being a full-time carer for a parent with Alzheimer's, and I'm currently learning German, Esperanto, & Greek, writing a novel (the first draft came to around 119,000 words and the second draft (16% complete) is currently 135,000 words), and working through various online courses including Python, c++, and Swift courses.

My interests include artificial intelligence, life-long learning, and trying things which other people claim to be impossible.
