October 2016 Report Card

This was a pretty slow month when it comes to YouTube and my Blog but I promise you that I have some good excuses. First off I got engaged this month and you can read all about it here. Another reason I have been pretty busy this month is because I have really been focusing on Amazon Merch this month. I am going to add My Merch earnings to this report card every month in case anyone wants to see it.

Hi, I’m Dan Vega. I am a Software Engineer living just outside of one of my favorite places in the world, Cleveland, Ohio. I am a self-taught programmer who firmly believes that you can accomplish anything in this life if you put your mind to it, roll up your sleeves and are willing to put in the work.

I have been writing software for over 18+ years now and I use my knowledge, passion, and influence to help other developers achieve their goals. I teach online and currently, have over 30,000 students.

When I am not writing software, I have a number of things that really keep me busy. I love to read books, listen to podcasts and watch online courses. I have a real thirst for knowledge and it consumes me every single day of the week. I also love to run & lift heavy weights which keep me balanced throughout the week.
