I would like to be a computer scientist, but by now I am more a computer amateur. But that's all right: I think that's how most of us start anyway.
I am a Brazilian programmer who's very fond of Perl, Smalltalk, and other unconventional languages (both theoretically and socially when compared to the mainstream languages, the ones your boss likes). I think I would stay for a while at this nice Lua community and learn lots of useful stuff. Maybe I could even help some day.
I am preparing a text for the FunctionCallTutorial. While it is not ready, I would like to elaborate at least at ProperTailRecursion.
