My name is Daniel Milholland (@Milhound). I am employed in Gail Winds Logistics as the Operations Supervisor. However, I aspire to work in the information technology field, as a software developer or information security analyst. I am a quick learner and am highly dedicated to my studies. I am a coding hobbyist who is always striving to learn more, and create more complex applications.
As for emerging technologies, I'm quite interested in the Rust Programming Language. It appears to have worked out the pitfalls, of traditional the C/C++ language and promotes itself as the complete memory safe option for writing C-level applications. The language looks different than that of C/C++, and honestly, I love most of the syntax.
I am fully self-taught and have used many great resources to obtain the level of knowledge I have now. Team Treehouse taught me the basics of software development and the overall principles of programming design. Thenewboston was a great resource to learn about, and practice with new technologies. However, I feel like most of my growth has come from communities on Discord/Slack, and other servers where I am able to communicate with other developers. I am always looking for new opportunities to learn more about programming. I currently have experience creating and making API requests, socket connections, and REST services.
