Dan Williams, our third panelist, lives in node.js land at Igniter.
3. Dan Williams – @deedubs
Dan is the lead developer at Igniter. Having learned at young age that drawing and painting weren’t in his genes, he turned to code as his creative outlet. After years of experience with PHP and Ruby on Rails, he’s found his home in node.js. For Dan, node is like a mind-meld with code. Living in an event-driven world, node maps naturally to the way the world works, making it easier than ever to create the world that comes next. Known as deedubs in the ether, he can often be found contributing to code communities though github and IRC where he is immersed in building better infrastructure for building better apps.
Our surprise fourth panelist, Stephen Hamer, has done things in the browser that you’ve never even heard of.

A little bit of background …
Last summer, we decided to start hosting #nerdlearn panels to bring together developers from the community, and give them the chance to learn from our panelists, who are always experts on the topic of the evening. The events are always very casual. We start the night off with pizza, beer, and mingling, followed by the actual panel for about an hour. Although we do have a general plan for the discussion, we encourage the audience to get involved throughout the hour, ask our panelists tough questions, and shout out their opinions.
If you’re a developer in Toronto, and you’re more than ready to #nerdlearn and meet other great local developers, come out and join us on February 2nd at 6pm!
