OpenDevise Inc. Lone Tree, CO
Dan is an open source advocate, community catalyst, software generalist, author and speaker. Most of the time, he's hacking using some JVM language. He leads the Asciidoctor project and serves as the community liaison for Arquillian. He builds on these experiences to help make a variety of open source projects wildly successful, including Asciidoctor, Arquillian, Opal and JBoss Forge. Dan is the author of Seam in Action (Manning, 2008) and has written articles for NFJS, the Magazine, IBM developerWorks, Java Tech Journal and JAXenter. He's also an internationally recognized speaker, having presented at major software conferences including JavaOne, Devoxx, NFJS, UberConf, RWX, JAX and jFokus. He's recognized as a JavaOne Rock Star and Java (JVM) Champion. After a long conference day, you'll likely find Dan geeking out about technology, documentation and testing with fellow community members over a Trappist beer or Kentucky Bourbon.
