Hi, Iā€™m Daniel Stout. Freelance web developer, dog parent, hobbyist chef, disc golfer, and music nerd living in East TN.

Your Next Web Developer Awaits!

Skilled freelance web developer seeks interesting and meaningful contract and/or remote work. Specializing in JavaScript based programming of various flavors, especially Node and React. JAMstack advocate.

Quick Bio:

Passionate and continuously learning freelance web developer with over fourteen years of professional experience. Enjoys programming in several languages, solving problems, and even doing occasional design work. Also an excellent communicator and plays nice with others.

Seeking:

  • Meaningful and challenging remote React projects to become involved with ā€“ as part of a team or solo.
  • Art directors and/or web designers who would prefer to avoid coding. Let me code that for you!
  • Digital Media firms needing an extra hand with overflow projects. I'm also open to a more permanent role with the right company, full or part time. (Remote only, no exceptions unless local.)
  • Small to medium-sized businesses needing expert guidance and assistance with websites, apps, social media and more. If I can't help, I can assist you with finding the appropriate service(s).

Current Status:

I've had almost zero public-facing work available over the past few months, but appearances can be deceiving. I actually have well over 600K lines of code committed to private repos since September 2018!

Of note, I have been doing lots of frontend (Next.js, d3.js) and backend (node.js) work on the gigantic World Population Review website. I have been really enjoying the constantly varied and challenging work, and it has definitely sharpened my React chops in a hurry. This work is currently ongoing, and I hope it continues for many more months if possible.

Availability: I'm very much available for other work. Please get in touch!
