Hi, I'm bendem and I like reinventing the wheel (over and over again).
My goal in life is to solve problems. Be it performance, security, usability or formatting problems; I'm down for it. It's even better if I learn something new while solving them. To do so, I learn languages as I go. I started with php but I'm now mostly using Java and C++. I generally start big projects by reinventing the wheel to get a better understanding of why popular libraries solved problems the way they did.
