Training / Workshops

I currently offer one, two, and four day, public and private courses on iOS and macOS development in Swift. For a list of the current classes, upcoming public dates, and booking information visit the Training page.


I frequently give keynotes and technical sessions at conferences and local group meetups.

For the most part, the topics are iOS and OS X development, Swift, pedagogy, mathematics, podcasting, story telling, team building, and reaching your audience.

For a list of upcoming conference appearances and booking information visit the Speaking page.


I've hosted and produced podcasts for more than ten years and worked in radio for dozens of years before that. Currently, Jaimee Newberry and I co-host the Tiny Challenges podcast.

Consulting / Contracting

Now and then I have time for new coding or podcasting projects. I'm particularly interested in exploring pedagogy and creating learning environments. I'm also looking for creative audio projects but will also consider iOS and OS X development gigs. For consulting and contracting inquiries, please contact me at inquiries@dimsumthinking.com.

Daniel is the author of the best selling books A Swift Kickstart and Developing iOS 7 Apps for iPad and iPhone (the official companion book to the popular iTunes U series from Stanford University).

He has written apps for the iPhone and the iPad since the SDKs first appeared and has written programs for the Mac all the way back to System 7.

Daniel presents iPhone, Cocoa, and Swift training and consults through his company Dim Sum Thinking. He is the co-host of the Tiny Challenges Podcast. When he's not coding or talking about coding for the Mac, the iPhone, and the iPad he's probably cooking or hanging out with his wife and daughter.
