Just a little intro to myself and this blog.
Wow, what a an unexpected title, amirite?
Hi, my name is Daniel, and this is my blog, I guess! I think I'm going to use it to talk about what I'm doing and how I'm doing it. It's probably a bit cliché that a programmer's writing a technical blog, but I hope that my experience with both programming and English will help at least a few people!
Besides TS/JS, I write code in Java, Python, Dart, and C#. I particularly like Dart because it's similar to TS and is the host language of Flutter, an incredible cross-platform, declarative front-end framework.
This summer, I'm interning at Gallup as a Software Developer. Surprisingly, they don't just do polls! 🤯
I just graduated from Creighton Preparatory School in Omaha, and I will be attending The Raikes School at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln this fall.
So, what else do I do besides program?
- I act in plays, as seen below in "Hello, Dolly!" I have also been in "A Midsummer Night's Dream," "The Birds" by Aristophanes, "RAGS," "The Sound of Music," and more.
- I sing! I was Tenor 1 section leader Junior and Senior years in my high school Chamber Choir. I like singing big, harmony-rich choral music; not so much pop music or solo music (though art songs are cool).
- 日本語を勉強します (That means "I study Japanese" in Japanese)! A lot of people think I want to learn Japanese because I'm a weeb. Well, to tell you the truth, I'm a weeb because I want to learn Japanese. I wanted to try something new a while ago, and so I decided studying Japanese would be fun (turns out it is). A few weeks later, a friend showed me Steins;Gate and I was hooked. I liked the show for its actual quality content (you should totally watch it). But afterwards, I realized that watching anime would be a great way to improve my Japanese skills! So I watched another show my friend recommended to me: ジョジョの奇妙な冒険 (Jojo's Bizarre Adventure). And, well, now I guess you could call me a weeb.
So, yeah, I guess that's me in a nutshell. Go check out my projects on GitHub; I'll be writing about a few of them soon! I have no social media because I am too conscientious about my online presence, so I guess don't follow me on Twitter.
Oh! Also, I love cats. This is Jasper, one of my three:
