👋🏻 Hi, I'm Dan. I'm a software engineer based in Lehi, UT.
I'm a detail-oriented developer, focused on good architecture, test-covered code, and favor precision over speed. I'm a perfect fit for the "make it right" stage of your company.
Outside of the office you can find me coding side projects, playing tabletop games, woodworking, rock climbing, and relaxing with family.
I'm a full stack developer with significant experience in multiple front-end and back-end frameworks. I've dug into tooling enough to understand how it works, but I'm not your go-to guy for optimizing your webpack setup. I'm likewise not a DB wizard, but I know enough to do the day to day tasks. I've recently started diving into AWS, kubernetes, etc. on side projects but haven't been in it enough to make it stick.
TLDR; I can do the job, do it right, and whatever I don't know right now I would love to learn :)
Contributed to two new runtimes for the Internet Computer blockchain: Azle, a JS/TS runtime, and Kybra, a python runtime. Most of my contributions are in Azle where I made 136 PRs.
I worked on the Integrations Team building robust integrations with partner vendors. I was the principal code owner for one of the these integrations. This involved increasing the integration's reliability/stability and adding robust error monitoring, and test coverage.
I was the lead developer for a team of three. I worked with the project director to determine features and deliverables. I built a large portion of our frontend as well as designed the UI/UX. Started building a graphql server near the end of my time there.
This is where I got my start as a developer. I worked on both the angular.js/phonegap mobile app and a prototype website. I wasn't super familiar with web dev or working on a large team, so this helped me get my feet wet. I learned the basics of agile and scrum and was introduced to build processes, testing, and project management. I left knowing how to start a front-end project on my own which quickly led to a bunch of side projects for furthering my education.
