I keep an open ear for interesting projects from all sorts of places. In general, the best way to contact me is by emailing . Alternatively, I’m active on Twitter with the handle @basicallydan.

Freelance Development

I have 4 years commercial experience developing web-based and mobile software, and I’ve been making websites for over 15 years. I’m happy working at most levels of the application stack. For more information, get in touch now.

Get in touch.

Public Speaking

I like to get up in front of audiences and tell them about the things I know, which ranges from API development to front-end dev, as well as non-software topics such as writing and recording music.

At General Assembly, I take a class of 15-25 students from zero understanding to a novice-intermediate understanding of HTML, CSS and JavaScript. See more at the General Assembly site.

API Prototyping - Skills Matter - 02/07/2014

Many projects these days don’t warrant large amounts of design up-front and are better suited to a more iterative approach, especially when designing APIs. This talk introduces the audience to Interfake, the tool I designed specifically for the purposes of lightweight API creation.

PhoneGap: It’s not quite as bad as you think - Mobilise - 06/06/2014

For a long time, PhoneGap applications have been second-class citizens in the native mobile landscape. It’s actually quite a lot of work to get a PhoneGap application working quite as nicely as it could, and in this talk I take the audience through some ideas, and help them to decide whether PhoneGap is right for their project or not.
