    Introduction: Hello everyone! My name is Caleb, but in-game you’ve seen me as LordInateur. My life story isn’t too terribly exciting—I’m the eldest brother of my younger brother and sister, and currently I am finishing up my bachelor’s degrees in computer science, digital forensics, software engineering, and mathematics at my university. I’ve been proud to serve as the chair of our local student chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery (an international computer science club, for those of you not familiar with the ACM). I’ve also had the honor of serving my peers as a Senator for our student government and as a past president of my fraternity. However, at heart I am a developer. While I had developed software for a relatively long time, my true passion definitely came from Minecraft (in that one can easily modify it and create new gamemodes or other plugins). I joined MeepCraft quite a long time ago (or so it seems), right around 2012 and it was family for a long time. There was even one point in time when I was very proud to serve on the moderation-side of the MeepStaff. Unfortunately, school got a little bit in the way for a couple of years, but I was very pleased to still see a wonderful player base when I returned. I was very glad to see some old faces (some of these old faces I’ve become very good friends with IRL), and I am happy to have become friends with some new faces. I look forward to hopefully serving the players of MeepCraft in our quest to fully streamline the behind-the-scenes technical work of the server.

    Please describe your experience as a developer. I learned my first computer language in 2009, when I was in the fourth grade. I had asked my father to teach me how to code, and in response he swiftly tossed an O’Reilly HTML 4.0 book at me. And while computer science had been a passion of mine ever since then, I didn’t fully realize my passion for the art until I started working with Bukkit (a Minecraft server-modding API) in 2012. Since then, I’ve developed a number of applications (most of which are unfortunately closed-source, due to the proprietary nature of the companies that I have worked for). When I graduated high school in 2013, I was immediately asked by Sonic Corporate Headquarters (the fast food chain) to work as a summer intern in our IT department, where I worked as the lead developer to create COGNOS reports, AS/400 SSN hashing programs, and test suites for automated production code testing. Currently, I work as the lead developer for a company that creates and maintains the data connections between various hospitals. As I mentioned before, I currently also run the computer science student organization at my university (where I’m working on also launching a robotics team), and I also serve there as one of the lead tutors for our computer science department. I mention this because I believe that development is so much more than just coding a project. Rather, development is also the act of being a team-player to get things done in a timely fashion, and I believe that these experiences have taught me a considerable deal about software development lifecycles.

    What programming languages are you familiar with? I am familiar with computer languages such as C, C++, Java, Elixir + Erlang/OTP, RPGLE (a little), Ada (a little), XML, YAML, HTML, CSS, JavaScript (and jQuery), C# (a little), Python, batch + bash scripts, SQL, etc.

    What are you most proud of as your work as a developer? I am most proud of my ability to teach as a result of my work developing software. When I’m finished with my career path, I’d like to come back and teach computer science as a professor at my university. I’m also proud that a lot of my tech work (especially in health care) is going to be directly used to help people.

    How do you plan to enrich the experience of MeepCraft with your development contributions? There is a lot of potential at MeepCraft. One of the things that I would personally like to work on is the possibility of fully integrating the MeepCraft website with the in-game experience (as noted in one of the suggestions that I had posted on the forums earlier). That being said, I look forward to being able to help out in any way I can with any of the existing software that we use as well as any new software that we hope to bring onboard.

    Do you have a GitHub account or personal website? If so, please provide the link(s) here. My website is at www.calebpower.com and the account that I use for code hosting is calebpower — Bitbucket. Some of the work that I had was lost to the ages or was closed-source, but I’ve uploaded some projects that I’m working on currently. If you look on the Bitbucket account, the project that is the most complete at the moment is probably the “AmusingDeaths” Minecraft plugin.

    Your vast knowledge of all those coding languages is just a proof of how good you are.
    I think the server could benefit of your help.

    If you put in half the work into being tech as you do into your application replies, I'm sure you'll be phenomenal.

    +1, good luck.

    Honestly I know nothing about coding but if you put the same effort into coding as you've done on your app, I know you can do it

    In-Game: +1

    Though I don't play much, the times I on I usually see you online. I've known you since 2013, and you've never once wronged me. Despite being on the quiet side,I think you can do a good job.

    EllieEllie: +10
    @EllieEllie supports you, and that's good enough for me ;)

    Conclusion and Recommendation: +1
    I think that you would be a very exceptional addition to the team.

    Funny how it still fits though ;)
