Core Skills

Expert Researcher

As a software engineer, I must always be learning. The best way to learn is by asking the right questions and knowing how to find the right answers. I continue to master this art.

Self Taught

Following from my core ability to do expert research, I am largely self taught in software engineering. I have had wonderful teachers and mentors, but I pride myself on being able to pick up new skills on my own.

Empathetic Engineer

Engineers should be considered as the medium between the users and the tools that will enable them to best accomplish their goals. Thus, in order to best engineer those tools, I do my best to understand my users and their goals.

Who is Lincoln W Daniel

Lincoln W Daniel is a full stack software engineer who puts a large focus on the goals of the user when designing software. Lincoln has worked at companies big and small. Receiving internship offers from companies like NASA JPL, he has worked at IBM and Medium.

During the summer after his Freshman year, to learn the LAMP stack, Lincoln developed a social marketplace for students like himself to buy and sell their belongings locally.

Lincoln spent his summer after sophomore year with IBM Watson developing a search framework from scratch. In that project, Lincoln's main contribution was the ranking system.

The next summer, Lincoln spent his time working at Medium on new features for publications. During that internship, Lincoln also spent some time working with the Trust & Safety team and built a feature to eliminate spam in a certain area of the platform.

Along with engineering, Lincoln is an avid writer and enjoys designing. During his winter break of Junior year, Lincoln wrote a book, Java for Humans, to teach beginners the basics of Java in a more enjoyable and human relatable manner. Java for Humans is being read and leveraged by thousands of beginners across the country to get started with the most widely deployed language. 

On the topic of writing, Lincoln runs the largest publication on Medium for articles on topics related to business marketing and growth hacking: Marketing & Growth Hacking. Request to contribute through SuperMeditor.

After all is said and done, Lincoln hopes to have developed software to enable people to accomplish their goals more efficiently.

Languages & Platforms


I learned Java primarily in school as it is the main language at my university.

Concurrency, Networking, Data Structures, Databases, Web Backends, Android. Those are among the areas of study I've focused on in my Java experience.

I've also written a book, Java for Humans, to teach beginners the basics of Java in a more enjoyable and human relatable manner.


I am self taught in full stack Javascript.

My first project, Tuurtle, was a social marketplace for students to buy and sell their belongings locally. 

From there, I have gone on to develop more web apps and mobile apps with JS backends.


While I choose to not program in PHP any longer, I am still knowledgeable of it and can pick it back up at any time. It was one of the first languages I taught myself while building Tuurtle.


I am a self taught Android developer. I have built many applications in Android including social networks, communication apps, and camera apps. Some of my Android apps were built specifically for Google Glass. One of my larger apps is inTouch, which helps users stay in touch with those who matter most to them.


I am least knowledgeable of iOS development, but in my short time contributing to a project or two, I have been able to adequately do my part.  I continue to learn more as I practice.


I have designed and developed many websites and web applications. Using plain HTML, CSS, JS as well as with Angular JS on top of the MEAN Stack. One of my favorite projects in this area is SuperMeditor.

they say

If you see a few lines of atrocious code, you can make a judgement about the programmer. By judging the programmer, you can judge his boss, and by judging his boss.

Des Traynor

The whole essence of good drawing—and of good thinking, perhaps—is to work a subject down to the simplest form possible and still have it believable for what it is meant to be.

Chuck Jones

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Design is knowing which ones to keep.
Keep it simple idiot!
