About Me:

I'm a 9th grader at Howard High School. My full name is Dustin Van Tate Testa, but everyone calls me Tate.

My Hobbies:

I started learning my second language (Danish) in 5th grade. I also played with model air planes, this lead me to start playing with electronics in 6th grade. By the next year, I had started playing with my first programming language (BASIC), and quickly moved on to C++. Later on that year I established my lab in my family's attic where I began experimenting in chemistry. By the spring of 2013 I had created an operational foundry on my parents' empty lot, which I continue to use as my primary source of income. Since the 5th grade I've been making 3D models in SketchUp I recently (as of summer of 2014) I started with an open-source application called Wings3D. Combining my modelling software, and my programming through unity, I am working on a video game.

About this Website:

In the spring of 2014, I created a program in VBScript which finds the area between any 3 coordinates. Most of the kids in my math class wanted a copy of it. I attempted to send it via email, but Gmail wouldn't let me send it. So I converted it to HTA, ASP, and finally PHP (I had never heard of JavaScript). This was my first addition to this website. You can still visit it here (or here for the original prototype). I continued to add more pages for all of my hobbies.
