About codemonkeyz

codemonkeyz.com is a blog I’ve been waiting to write for a while now. It contains my thoughts, opinions, and various musings on everything from coding, to management to coffee.

About me

I’m Daniel, I live in Tel Aviv Israel with my wife. I’m an entrepreneur, a software developer and a huge coffee geek. I built my first program in DOS QBasic back in 1995. Afterwards, I’ve continued onto Visual Basic and C/C++ on Windows 3.1. Right now I’m comfortable with pretty much every language out there, provided that it’s open source. While I do love computers, I do find the people that hack on them every day super interesting. In the art of software development, proper management is a somewhat neglected topic which I intend this blog to change (as much as I can).

Stuff I did professionally -

  • Worked on incredibly complex opertional code for the army
  • Maintained the backend for a 100M user service all by myself
  • Became a freelance consultant and worked with dozens of companies on improving their code and processes
  • Started my own company (and eventually sold it)
  • Interviewed over a thousand applicants for various coding positions
