Daniel Hodan

Hi! I am Daniel Hodan, a freelance software engineer based in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. For more than 10 years, I target crafting pragmatic software solutions with emphasis on simplicity for startups, small businesses, companies, enterprises and you.


As an experienced self-driven software engineer with focus on creating distributed systems, I have delivered several backend solutions with command line or web based frontends. Pragmatic, simple, easy and accurate design without useless complexity represents my philosophy.

As a team leader I defined system architecture, set up software development processes and made people passionate about technology, more productive and smarter. Besides that I helped organizing technical community meetup, gave talks about programming in Go and design patterns for creating Microservices. I really enjoy personal communication, knowledge sharing and networking.

As a developer I have got several years of professional experience in programming languages Golang, Java and Javascript. My enthusiasm in computer science history and other programming paradigms like Functional and Reactive Programming is linked to learning new technologies, paradigms, languages and ideas behind them.

My past work experience covers companies from startups, small size companies to enterprises. I prefer working on-site close with team members but also have experience with working remotely.


I like to learn latest and also older rock solid technologies. Currently my main focus is: Golang, Docker, Kubernetes, SQLite, Redis, C with GTK+, Linux and FreeBSD.

There were times in the past when I dedicated myself to technologies like Java EE and web browser development in Javascript/Typescript.

It is not only about current technologies but also about techniques and architecture. I find the joy in practising the following: Agile Software Development, DevOps, TDD, MDD with Microservices, RESTful Web Services and Event sourcing.

Besides technical knowledge and experience I also have team management skills.
