My name is Daniel Arndt. I grew up across Canada (in a military family), from Nova Scotia to British Columbia, and wouldn’t have it any other way. After having the chance to see Canada, I call Halifax home.
As one of the earlier adopters of the up and coming popular hit, “The Internet”, I began teaching myself about how computers worked — and how I could use them to accomplish my goals — when I was very young. My story as a computer science professional begins when I was about 11 years old. Looking back now, I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I opened up a hex editor to reverse engineer a Gameboy game I was playing.
Fast forward many years, I graduated with my Bachelor’s of Computer Science in May 2010.
In August 2012, I graduated from Dalhousie University with my Master of Computer Science degree. My thesis investigated the use of genetic programs for network traffic analysis.
I now work full-time as an Optimization Software Engineer at Analyze Re.
I have many interests, the most consistent of these are artificial intelligence, and open source software. To stray away from computers a bit, I am an avid hiker, particularly interested in multi-day back country trips, brewing beer, and I enjoy reading about history and cognitive psychology.
