Daniel Gehrer
Taming Mobile Development

84% of the world's population owns a smartphone today. Mobile software is not the future. It's already the default today. I'm devoted to taming the complexity that comes with developing and scaling mobile software to create valuable, high-quality products.

Already as a child, I was fascinated by computers and electrical engineering. Today, I develop software and lead teams of developers to build world-class apps that solve real people's problems.
