Hi there! My name is Tanner Dolby. I'm a Software Engineer and Mathematician based in Sacramento, CA. I enjoy working with HTML, CSS, Sass, JavaScript, Node, React, Python, Java, WebGL, C++ and Eleventy. I started to learn web development using freeCodeCamp.org in 2017. Ever since then, I've been hooked on programming and building things for the web.

I focus on building responsive and fast websites. Recently, I've been learning about developing applications using the MEAN/MERN stack. I spend most of my free time contributing to open source, building side projects, reading, creating fun CSS illustrations, and making front-end demos on CodePen. With the JAMstack movement on the rise, I've taken an interest in Static Site Generators (SSG). In particular Eleventy, which this website is built with.

Interests

I like to write about technology and web development. I'm currently fixated on learning more about React, JavaScript, Rust, Cloud computing, and Web performance. If you want to see me write about a specific topic or concept, feel free to message me about it. Lately, I've been very interested in CSS illustrations and SVG. I may write about these hobbies in future posts.

Education

I received my Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics from Arizona State University on May 11, 2020. Due to a global pandemic, the university didn't conduct an in-person commencement ceremenony. Feel free to take a look at the virtual ceremonies.

During my time at ASU, I worked as an Undergraduate Researcher and Supplemental Instruction leader for Differential Equations. My passion for mathematics and computing became most apparent to me after completing discrete math and linear algebra. At the moment, I don't have plans for attending grad school but I'm interested in learning about Knot Theory.
