Daniel has been working as a front end and full stack developer in the tech industry since 2011. He's developed single-page applications for banks like CIBC, charities like the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research, and at ad agencies like McLaren McCann, TraffikGroup and Olson. Throughout his labors, he's worked on computer programming in his spare time because, well, he's obsessed with it. In addition to being featured in both CSS Weekly and JavaScript weekly, Daniel is well-known throughout the open-source community for maintaining several open-source tools, most notably the Angular.js and LESS-based tool, Range .css and the Angular .js audio tool, ngAudio.
