Daniel Pryden

I've been writing code since I was six years old. I spent nearly twenty years in the tech industry, including nine years working on software for environmental science applications, as well as more than five years working for Google on mapping and on application server infrastructure.

In 2017, I left Silicon Valley to focus on personal and spiritual interests, and today my primary outlet for coding is volunteer work I do for the worldwide organization of Jehovah's Witnesses.

Besides being fluent in English and American Sign Language, I know too many programming languages to count. Some of my favorites include Java, Python, and C#, although I'm also known to nerd out about functional languages and complex type systems (e.g. ask me about how Java 8's CompletionStage compares to Haskell's IO monad).

In my spare time, I play guitar and read voraciously, including science fiction and books on computing. I'm also a volunteer minister for the deaf, teaching Bible studies in American Sign Language.
