About Dan

Dan Garland

I'm a web developer, teacher and tech founder, passionate about creativity and learning new things.

In my 15 years of experience, I built apps for startups, agencies and for Government, some of which I have documented on my portfolio page. I taught web development for five years, at various international schools and bootcamps.

My favourite languages are HTML, CSS, Ruby and JavaScript, but I'm enjoying learning Go and Solidity right now.

I founded a 12 week, live-in bootcamp that links junior web developers to jobs, called We Got Coders. I taught hundreds of students and directly employed over 75 of them, giving them their first opportunity as a web developer. We provided luxurious living at amazing venues around the UK, learning to code in style!

What I love most about teaching, is that it provides us a chance to stop and think about all of the knowledge that I've accumulated, and pass it on to others. There's nothing better than the enthusiasm of learning something new, and so I'm lucky to have met so many people who have shared their learning experiences with me.

When I'm not writing code, I enjoy making synth music and collecting synthesizers. As a proud dad, spare time is short, but I enjoy reading, cooking, playing chess and speaking French.
