Michael Morin is a former writer for ThoughtCo and contributed articles about computer programming for seven years as an expert on Ruby, the formerly obscure programming language that is now one of the most popular in the world.
Beginning with BASIC on the Commodore 64, Morin has learned nearly every major language in use. He's worked with programming on every level, from assembly language programming on a microcontroller to web application programming and everything in between. An early adopter of Linux, Morin is also familiar with Linux and BSD systems as well as system security and defensive programming. He regularly contributes to online knowledge bases, both writing and evaluating code, and has made presentations for Linux Users Groups.
