About Dan Shaw
I am Dan Shaw. Many people refer to me as simply dshaw. I have dedicated my career to growing the Node.js Ecosystem. I was instrumental in the formation of the Node.js Foundation, where I was a founding member. I served on the Node.js Foundation Board of Directors as an Executive Director and Secretary. I have been referred to as "The Godfather of Node.js" for my tireless efforts to build community and unite the needs of developers and business leaders.
I created the first consulting company dedicated to Node.js called The Node Firm and then the first commercial entity to productize Node.js with NodeSource. Today, I work across the industry providing leadership as a Strategic Advisor to companies looking grow their presence and work effectively with Node.js.
