I founded DaniWeb.com in February 2002, while pursuing a computer science degree on Long Island, NY. DaniWeb was built on the foundation of combining elements of social networking with a friendly, professional, industry-focused community that encompasses everything IT related under one roof.
Today, half a billion visitors later, the site has evolved into a vibrant community of members learning, sharing knowledge, and engaging with other developers, IT pros, digital marketers, technophiles, and computer hobbyists.
For nearly two decades, I have been working fulltime at DaniWeb® LLC. For the past handful of years, I split my time between my hometown of NYC and Palo Alto, California, in the heart of silicon valley. Currently, I live fulltime in Los Gatos, in the foothills of the Santa Cruz mountains. This website and its community have been both my livelihood as well as my passion project for more than half my life, and it warms my heart to see how many others out there it touches.
To the over one million DaniWeb members out there, thank you for joining me on this journey.
With great appreciation,
