Daniel Wachtel

Hey my name's Daniel, welcome to my blog!

I'm a former practicing architect (as in buildings, not software architect) who changed professions and is now a full time software developer.

At my day job I mostly work with Ruby on Rails, JavaScript and a bit of React, but in my free time I like picking up new technologies. For my personal projects I'm using Elixir / Phoenix and deploying with Docker Swarm.

I'm currently building domaineim.com - a free available domain database and I'm also a committee member of the 100 School Project charity where we raise funds to help schools and improve education in poor regional areas - as a start we've been concentrating on provinces in India and helping out by supplying school furniture and shoes for the children.

I use this blog as a personal journal but hopefully also to help others learn.

If you have any questions, suggestions or just want to get in touch you can contact me here.
