Developer

Dave’s been a mySociety developer since July 2013, and has become an expert in our travel-time mapping tool, Mapumental, adding features for public use, and modifying it for some innovative commercial purposes.

He’s also worked on building data presentation tools for our commercial clients.

Before coming to mySociety, Dave built academic software for Swansea University, and also spent a year in Helsinki creating mobile web apps before they were cool.

Dave lives on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, which provides a perfect backdrop for staring out the window whilst thinking about why his code’s not working.

In his spare time, he likes to wobble up and down the Welsh countryside on a mountain bike, play drums, and use his computer to make sounds that are almost, but not quite, entirely unlike music.

Dave is fluent in: Python, Django and JavaScript, with a soupçon of C and Java. He can also mumble enough Finnish to order a round of beers.
