Hi! I'm Dan Denney and I'm a Front-end Engineer at DataCamp.

Titles are weird, so basically I write HTML, CSS, and JavaScript for a living. (And, for fun)

Some stuff on the site:

Some of my fave things I've built.

Roulettingale v2

If you apply the Martingale betting system when playing roulette, there are only two ways you can lose: not having enough money to make the necessary bet or the casino let letting you bet enough. This project tracks a few thousand spins to show what values you could attempt this at in casinos.

After learning D3, I took a crack at making a fun page to show off how much of an impact Post Malone's album had on the Spotify Charts.
