I’m Daniel. I currently work at HPE on the Chapel language team. Previously, I got my Master’s Degree in Programming Languages at Oregon State University. Due to my initial interest in calculators and compilers, I got involved in the Programming Language Theory research group in my first year of college, and ended up gaining same experience in formal verification, domain specific language, and explainable computing.
A few notes about me or this site:
- Correctness: I mostly write technical content. Even though I proofread my articles, there’s always a fairly good chance that I’m wrong. You should always use your best judgement when reading anything on this site – if something seems wrong, it may very well be. I’m far from an expert.
- Schedule: I do not have a set post schedule. There are many reasons for this: schoolwork, personal life, lack of inspiration. It also takes a very long time for me to write a single article. My article on polymorphic type checking is around 8,000 words long; besides writing it, I have to edit it, link up all the code references, and proofread the final result. And of course, I need to write the code and occasionally do some research.
- Source code: This blog is open source, but not on GitHub. Instead, you can find the code on my Gitea instance. If you use this code for your own site, I would prefer that you don’t copy the theme.
