My family name MUSHA (武者) means samurai, or to translate it literally, "brave one". My given name, Akinori (晶紀) was named by my parents after two kanji that appear in a phrase "shine in the next (21st) century".
Since I first learned to code at the age of around ten, I have grown my programming skills to the level I can write apps I want, contribute to OSS, and develop software products and services that make our lives happier. I still enjoy writing code to make the world a better place.
Now I have my own kids; I named them after the family story in the hope that they will pioneer the new century and weave the good intents into the society and history even after I get dim.
Feel free to add and/or DM me if you want to talk or whatever.
