Open Source Development

Open Is Something I Care About

Most of the things I end up making are totally open source. This means that I give you access to the code and it is up to you to judge if I write good code or not, either way you can see exactly what these apps are doing. I believe that open source truely helps drive innovation and change in technology. You can see my open source code on my GitHub account.

Dan Blair

Dan Blair

I am Dan Blair. I am a web and mobile application developer located in Winnipeg Manitoba. I am a father, developer, and student. I organize the Winnipeg Android user group, attend local developer events, and work for a cool company. I primarily work with PHP, JavaScript, and HTML5 which I use to develop websites, mobile apps, and hybrid apps.

I am a big fan of Linux and Shell Scripting and spend a lot of time tinkering with my servers, computers, and microcomputers. I was recently voted biggest geek in the office which feels like am accomplishment at a tech company.

App Development

I develop for several different platforms and am always looking at the latest and greatest for what is coming out.

I have developed several Android applications which together have collected over 50,000 downloads which is something that would be extra cool if I made money off them. Some of these apps were the first of their kinds such as the Nexus 7 Camera Launcher and Root Checking Utility.

Recently Mozilla released their first versions of Firefox OS, something that I was quick to jump on, I have been working with the hardware as well as developing apps for the platform and I recently released my D7 Peercoin Mining Utility which is one of the first apps developer for Firefox OS that implements an external API and is totally open source.

Web Development

I have worked with differnt types of people and companies to develop websites ranging from ecommerce to single page information sites that range on topics from parenting to car detailing and even to audio production. I work for an awesome company called BOLD where I get to work on exciting projects that push me to the limit and allow me to use a lot of new frameworks, languages, and technologies that help me do what I do.

I am comfortable working in PHP, Ruby, HTML5, and JavaScript. I am also happy using frameworks like WordPress, CodeIgniter, Rails, and jQuery.

On the web side of things I also work extensively with the servers that run my web sites. This includes Linux administration, scripting, and managing servers. This is arguably my favorite part of web development.

Reliable WordPress Developer

Daniel is a sharp and reliable WordPress developer to whom I had the pleasure of transferring responsibility for the support and maintenance of a Winnipeg not-for-profit organization's Website, online store, and social media. His professionalism and competence far exceed what you would expect of a student. It's a bonus that Dan is also a very nice guy. I very highly recommend him.

Savvy With Technology

Joanne Brown - Clinician, New Directions

Daniel has been providing full IT coverage for the Attachment Network of Manitoba for over a year and has rescued us a number of times. He anticipates our technological needs, looks for gaps to fill and is creative in filling them. He is knowledgeable about our needs and what the everchanging technological world has to offer, but best of all, he knows how to relate this to people not so savvy with technology. We would not hesitate to recommend him!
