Dan Maby is a freelance WordPress developer building websites focused on business goals. He is also the co-founder and Managing Director of assisted.by providing UK based virtual assistant services for busy entrepreneurs, start-ups and growing teams. The team also manage a number of tools for VA’s including the Virtual Assistant Directory.
His time is spent predominantly focused on business development but ensures time is set aside for getting into the code. His preference is backend development but will happily get involved in front-end projects too.
As well as the day-to-day running of his companies Dan also organises the WordPress London Meetup. His involvement in the user group started back in 2013, which lead to co-organising a London WordPress contributor day in 2014 and was on the organisational team for WordCamp London 2015. You will also find him volunteering at WordCamps.
2016 will see a new charitable foundation setup by Dan that will provide support for teens and young adults who are struggling with drink and drug addiction. The foundation will be using WordPress at its core to build and develop life skills for those individuals.
Topics covered during the podcast may include the challenges (and positives) of going it alone, giving back to the community and focusing on your team.Hangout Event
