Code ALL the things!

"Most good programmers do programming not because they expect to get paid or get adulation by the public, but because it is fun to program."

- Linus Torvalds

Software Engineer

I'm just a computer programmer that loves to experiment with new stuff. I have a large focus on user interfaces and experiences. When I'm not working, my free time is usually spent hanging out with friends, playing video games, or maybe working on a side project.

What I would love to do is get into the video game industry and help create immersive worlds with exciting game play.

Tools to get the job done

- Picture not of actual server... but close enough, right?

The server hosts various services, mostly for programming purposes.

Jenkins CI Continuous integration with static analytics to spot issues immediately and improve the existing code.
Sonatype Nexus Public Maven repository for other developers to access.
Stash Atlassian's Git repository manager for private repositories.
Minecraft Minecraft plugin testing server:
Dynmap for server:
Server not currently available while development is on hold.
OwnCloud Open source web-interface for cloud-based file management.
Imagination is more important than knowledge.

General questions about me.

What does "Dakani" mean?

Nothing really, its just the name that I used for my first Linux server... and it has sort of stuck ever since then for any server that I use.

Is all your code public?

Any of my personal projects are open source (but may be missing explicit licenses D:) and hosted on GitHub. I'm a believer in transparency in my work and the fact that we live in public anyways. Plus, it makes it easier to collaborate with others.

I have a Bukkit plugin idea. Can you make it?

I probably could code it... however my job already keeps me busy enough. So, you're better off finding another developer that actually has time to commit to your project.

Creativity is intelligence having fun.
