About

Hey there. I am Renan S Silva, also known as h3nnn4n or bacon_unleased / bacon_unleashed, depending on where you know me from. I recived my bachelor degree on Computer Science from the State University of Santa Catarina on august 2017. After that I started a master’s degree in applied computing Applied Computing working with the Ab Initio protein structure problem.

Currently I work full time as a Software Engineer on JobScore, mainly on backend and some data intesive tasks.

I am a man of many hobbies. I have a strong passion for puzzles, specially twisty ones, like the Rubik’s Cube. I love cats and coffee. I play drums and do origami. I like biking and hiking. I love artificial intelligence, optimization and machine learning (looks like everyone nowdays does).

Another thing that I do really enjoy is creative coding, which I have been doing on and off for more than 10 years. IIRC I started it in 2008, kidding around with QBasic and some trigonometry. A special kind of creative coding that I tend to do a lot is to fractals and strange / chaotic attractors as the main object in the piece. If you look around this page you will find a couple of examples. My github also has a lot of code about it too.

Here is a random picture of my puzzle collection (the cat is a specially hard one).
