Brief introduction, purpose of this website, and reflecting on the current state of the world. SLM RFID



My name is Daniel Mendez. As of the date this is being written (Summer 2020), I am a recent Computer Science Graduate. I have been fascinated with the innerworkings of technology at a young age, however I discovered my passion of programming during college. I would consider development more a hobby than job at this point with the excitement and endless learning it brings me.

Purpose of this Website

To make good use of all this free time, I felt it may be a good idea to challenge myself technically and compositionally by designing a website. I have worked on websites in the past, but never quite made a personal site I was satisfied with. This website will put my digital footprint on the internet and act as a virtual time-capsule.

I cannot say for sure what future posts may include however I will challenge myself to share interests, beliefs, discoveries and current projects. If I find myself pretentious enough to read my old blog posts, I can reflect on myself and possibly regain some knowledge I have shared in the past.

Reflecting on The Current State of The World

2020 has been a wild ride of a year and start of a new decade. Some days I just wonder how just bad this year can get. It has been over 5 months since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and it honestly feels like a blur to me. It is as if I have gone through a coma and only recollect the memories before all of this happened...

Memories are hard to keep when memories are not being made

I for one miss and am willing to invite the minor inconveniences of normal life such as feeling obligated to hold the door open for countless strangers or making pit-stops at sketchy gas stations. While I can still do these things, personal interaction will not feel normal for a long time.

Despite these unfortunate circumstances, I am optimistic and believe things will turn around and get better.
