Soon after graduating from Cornell University with a degree in Materials Science and Engineering in 2000, Dan became captivated by the world of Open Source software and began pursuing his interest in software development full time. He eventually discovered the combination of Linux and the Java EE platform to be the ideal blend on which to build his professional career. After sampling a myriad of frameworks, he found a good fit with Seam. He started writing about the framework, which led to him joining the Seam project team, first as a community member and later as an employee of Red Hat.
Dan lives with wife in Maryland (USA). You can keep up with Dan's development experiences by subscribing to his blog at http://mojavelinux.com or following him on twitter http://twitter.com/mojavelinux.
