My name is Dylan Weicker.
I'm an ambitious and optimistic year old software developer based in Vancouver, BC. I am passionate about education, entertainment, and social equality.
My fields of interest are web development, game development, UI design, and artificial intelligence.
My obsession with programming has driven me to independently develop each of these projects from scratch in my spare time.
My father owns a well-established management consultant firm. As a Father's Day gift, I created a website to communicate his company's features and services to potential clients.
I run a Pathfinder tabletop role play campaign. I developed a website to allow my players to easily lookup information regarding the fantasy game world I generated.
Using HTML5's canvas element, I recreated Hasbro's classic boardgame Clue. The game includes 2 AI opponents who navigate the board and gain knowledge as the game progresses.
Creating a character can be one of the most arduous tasks for new players to Pathfinder. To reduce the strain on prospective players, I created this web app to streamline the process.

In my opinion, education is the most important asset to humanity. It builds a person's knowledge of the world and empowers them to perform incredible tasks such as sharing insightful new philosophies or creating innovative technologies.
"To teach is to learn twice." That is why I love educating others. I like to create and post multimedia content online to share my knowledge with others. I discuss allyship with my peers to teach them how they can help people and animals who face oppression. And I am always willing to tutor others in fields where I excell, such as math and science.
I hope to use my skills as a software developer to work on a project which helps to educate others.
The best way to engage a person is to entertain them. People are more willing to listen to what you have to say and learn from you if they're having fun along the way.
There are many forms of entertainment that I appreciate. Theatre means a lot to me. I spent years volunteering my time as an actor and starred in three amatuer plays, including Shakespeare's Macbeth. I am obsessed with pop culture. Don't even get me started talking about pop music or the latest Netflix show, I'll never stop. And there's nothing I appreciate more than a dank meme. But the most rudimentary form of entertainment has to be games.
Game development has always been a huge passion of mine. It's what drove me to get started in computer science when I was 12; I wanted to make computer games.
It is my ambition to work as a professional game developer so that I can entertain a large audience.
