Hello! My name is Dalton Craven. It’s hard to introduce myself over the internet, but here’s a little bit about me:
I’m a junior at the University of South Carolina. I’m pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with a major in computer science and a minor in psychology (weird, right?). I’m also a McNair Scholar as part of UofSC’s most prestigious scholarship program, the University Top Scholars.
I just wrapped up a year-long exchange program at the American University of Paris! I was in France for the entirety of 2021, weathering lockdowns & strikes while gaining valuable life experience. I completed coursework in both computer science & psychology, as well as in French language and culture.
Summer 2021, I completed my fifth internship: a frontend web developer at Qantev. There, I worked in a React-based development stack, creating new features for our production application. I also helped run a rigorous QA session before shipping a new version of the application. Finally, I learned the basics of back end development (using Python & Pandas), culminating in a month-long new feature that I single-handedly executed.
I also do freelance web development! I work primarily with small businesses (although I’m open for anything), with an emphasis on providing resources and training to ensure long-term functionality.
