About me


My name is Chris Laplante.

profile for SimpleCoder at Stack Overflow, Q&A for professional and enthusiast programmers

I started programming about 10 years ago, beginning with Visual Basic 6 and then working my way up to C# and web languages.

Recently, I’ve been working with these languages and technologies extensively:

  • C/C++
  • Python
  • Matlab
  • Linux
…and these to a lesser extent:

I have several years of experience working with PHP, HTML, CSS and MySQL as well. Web development has become boring for me, and I’m much more interested in client-side stuff.

I’ve also worked with the Arduino platform and have recently gotten some experience doing basic electronic design and PCB layout with Eagle.

The Software and Projects pages list the open-source software and projects that I’ve created. You can also directly access my BitBucket repository here.

I am also used to be a regular answerer/asker at Stack Overflow. My profile is here.

I used to author Greasemonkey scripts. Check them out here.

My non-programming interests include photography (especially birds), food and cooking (mainly homemade ice cream), and video games (FPS almost exclusively).
