Yet another human.
Hi, welcome to my blog.
I am @isdanni (Danni), an engineer aspire & a senior CS student.
My journey in tech started way before college. When I was in primary school, my dad registered my first Gmail account(which welcomed me with hundreds of spam mail about 13 years later) and told me he would give it to me when “it’s time”. He is definitely the person influencing me the most about the career choice. I can remember clearly he would bring piles of electronic&computer magazines home after work and tried to assemble a desktop PC himself even though his job has nothing to do with the technology. He never asked me to learn with him but that was the first time I felt it’s pretty cool to know these stuff.
In high school, there were programming club and web-making class for junior students but I only showed up twice before quitting since it’s “too boring”. I started to go through my father’s old magazines and then turned to bookstores because most of them were severely outdated. I also learned my very first programming language at that time, Visual Basics and made some small computer games following tutorials. One day I was listening to a podcast about movies and The Social Network was on. I got interested because the characters spoke faster than any other roles I knew, so I watched it — and got a whole new view of how the tech world is about(tho not completely real, but still). However, this is still not the reason I chose Computer Science, not just because it looks cool.

The personal blog right now can be seen as the old chalkboard in the twentieth century, except it’s simply much better and more convenient. I used to think only the really senior and professional people write technical blogs so that people will learn from them, but the meaning of blog has advanced rapidly since the internet age. And I find it easier to learn stuff when I actually write some blogs about it.
When it comes to personality, I would say I’m an extroverted introvert – value interactions with people even I’m not the most talktive type but would be more likely to choose a night in than out. I always have new thoughts or ideas and I would love to note it down before my 80’s.(HA)
So why I blog? – free myelf and learn.
