Hi. I'm a free-software developer and, these days, I mostly work in and on Raku – a concise, expressive, aggressively multiparadigm language that supports gradual typing, built-in concurrency, rich metaprogramming, and best-in-class, Unicode-first string processing and pattern matching. I also program a fair amount in Rust (perfect for when I need the performance that comes from being closer to the metal) and in JavaScript.

Before discovering my interest in/apptitude for programming, I was an attorney practicing in the New York office of Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP. These days, in addition to my software develoment work, I'm a member of the Raku Steering Council and The Perl & Raku Foundation board. My professional interests include web development, open source, and making things as simple as possible.

I blog here on www.codesections.com/blog and share my shorter thoughts using the distributed, open-source social network Mastodon under the username @codesections@fosstodon.org . If you have any questions or just want to say "hi", feel free to email me at daniel@codesections.com or to reach out through any other contact method.
