Who am I?
Hi, I’m Dave Shanley.
I’m a hacker, product guy, software architect, inventor, technical leader, and failed musician.
I have about twenty-five years of experience with designing and building software and software products across various industries and businesses.
My specialty is Experience Engineering, which generally means that I design and build technology that you engage with as a consumer.
I work as a Distinguished Engineer at Splunk.
Making complex things feel simple and intuitive.
My ultimate goal, Creating the big red ’easy’ button.
The easy button means abstracting away a lot of different technological complexities.
All those complexities are pretty cool because it means I get to touch a lot of fast-moving tech.
I generally specialize in UI, CLI, API, and developer experience (DX); however, I’ve designed and built across a large landscape.
I’ve had the pleasure of architecting and building multiple platforms, SaaS products, developer tools, frameworks, games, and enterprise-scale management systems.
