Dylan Banta's Web Portfolio

Welcome to my own little corner of the internet, https://dylanbanta.com.


I'm currently an IT at the Muskingum County Library System. It is a rewarding experience, but when the work day ends, my tech adventures don't. I've always been drawn to crafting and hosting my own projects. From showcasing my work in a digital portfolio to designing tools and applications for my D&D group, I love bringing ideas to life.


I'm a results-driven professional with a deep appreciation for all things technology. When I first delved into the world of programming, I was captivated by C# and Unity. Over the next several years, I focused on learning the fundamentals of programming and web development as I attained my associates degree. I learned the basics of programming and the syntax of many of the most popular languages. As my domain https://dylanbanta.com came into existence, I became fascinated with PHP and JavaScript. With the flexibility these languages offer, especially when working on-the-go, they quickly became my staples. From there, I began studying different PHP based MVC models and ended up using Laravel, which I've used for most web based projects since then.


Beyond programming, I've been hands-on with various server setups and configurations. Whether it's Nginx or the convenience of Docker, I enjoy the process of setting up, managing, and optimizing servers. And let's not even get started on operating systems; while Linux holds a special place in my heart, I'm equally comfortable navigating the Windows environment, and while MacOS isn't my favorite environment, at work I've somehow still become "The Apple Guy" because I'm the only one who can work with Apple's architecture.


These days, my sights are set on DevOps. I believe it's the perfect arena for someone with my background and enthusiasm. Merging development and operations, shaping the future of projects, and being part of something bigger - that's the dream.
