My name is Dan Rice. I am a software developer and writer from Loveland, Colorado. Welcome to my portfolio!
This website is a lot of different things for me. Initially, it was simply the home of my blog and portfolio for Bloc, the coding bootcamp I currently attend. It is still those things. Each of the projects I have completed is described in the Work section of the site, complete with links to the source code of the projects.
But I want this website to be more than that. Since it has my name on it, I feel it should give you a complete picture of me and the core values I want to bring to the world, not just a narrow understanding of my Bloc projects and my experience making them. Those core values are to:
- Stay organized.
- Keep a schedule.
- Be responsible with one's finances.
- Value simplicity and minimalism.
- Practice gratitude for all that we have.
- Eat right and exercise, for the body and the mind.
- Maintain healthy relationships and eliminate toxic ones.
- Be a thermostat, not a thermometer.
- Remember to enjoy life while managing these responsibilities.
In short, I value acting with intention, not the impulsive moment. I value the goals that must be forever pursued, that are the hardest to achieve. I value empowering people to change their own lives instead of blaming others for their problems. I value thinking things through. I value living on purpose.
I hope this redesign of the site already reflects these values. I wanted it to be minimal and clean without diminishing its functionality, and I wanted it to be easier to maintain than some of the older versions. I feel I have achieved those goals. And while I will continue to add to my coding portfolio and expand on themes already present in my blog, I plan to make this site encompass all of the values I listed above, not just the handful I have thus far touched on, so that it reflects the change I want to make in the world.
I hope you enjoy it. Thank you for your time.
