My face

Brendan Lewis

@craftablescience

A 18-year-old programmer from the US East Coast.
This website is designed to quickly familiarize anyone immediately with who I am, what I enjoy doing, and some of my creations so far.
This is my current resumé.


Certifications & Knowledge

I have the following certifications:

  • CompTIA A+ Certification (Verify)
  • CompTIA Network+ Certification (Verify)
  • CompTIA IT Operations Specialist Certification (Verify)

I know the following programming languages:

  • Python 2.7 & 3.x
  • Java
  • C#
  • HTML/CSS/JS (that's how I made this site)
  • GDScript, for the Godot Game Engine

Using these languages, I have made several projects and a few games. I also have some other skills:

  • Familiar with Gradle for dependency management of Java and Kotlin projects
  • Familiar with Godot game engine for 2D video game creation
  • Familiar with Unity game engine for 3D video game creation
  • Knowledge of Blender for 3D hard surface modeling and animation
  • Knowledge of how to create a basic Android app in Kotlin
  • Familiar with making "maps" for Source engine video games in Hammer editor
  • Knowledge of Minecraft modding, for Forge and Fabric modloaders

Hobbies

I love to swim. From when I was 8 to when I was 18, I was a member of a swim team. For four years in a row, I qualified for the Districts level championship in the 50 Free, 100 Free, 200 Free, 500 Free, and 1000 Free. I qualified for other events as well, but the freestyle is my best stroke.

The things I enjoy doing on a daily basis, besides programming and swimming, are listed here:

  • Learning Japanese (日本語), largely through practice on Duolingo.
  • Moderating an online community on Discord with over 2,000 members and more than 200 active members every week. The community is focused on the "Galacticraft" mod for a video game called Minecraft, and is a place where users can troubleshoot crashes, post memes, and discuss advances in space travel.
  • Creating video games to learn game design, with the goal of one day creating a commercial game.
  • Creating 3D models in Blender, or using Blender for other features like placing 3D objects in prerecorded video using motion tracking or making physics simulations.
  • Playing "sandbox" video games like Kerbal Space Program or Minecraft.
  • Going for a bike ride.

Of course, programming various projects and swimming are the two activities that I spend the most time on.
