Dan Nations is a Lifewire writer who has been a tech journalist since 1994, first published in Computer Currents magazine. He develops apps for iPhone, iPad and Android devices, and has been interviewed for his expert opinion on air at radio stations including WJJG in Chicago, ABC's KGO in San Francisco, 1190 KEX in Portland, and KOA in Denver.
Daniel has over 20 years of experience in the computer industry, including work as a Sybase SQL data analyst, Microsoft SQL database administrator and a manager of research and development for a financial firm in Dallas, TX. He has been writing for the web and print since 1994, and his articles have appeared in publications such as Computer Currents, Examiner and The Spruce, where he has focused on the iPhone, iPad and Apple, as well as smart watches and wearables, gaming, Nintendo Switch, and communication technologies such as Bluetooth. Daniel first started writing about technology for Lifewire (formerly About.com) in 2007.
Daniel has published over a dozen apps and games on the Apple App Store, Google Play marketplace and Amazon Appstore. These apps includes Endless RPG, which allows people to randomly generate D&D and Pathfinder adventures, and Endless Adventure, a party-based rogue-like with random quests and dungeons.
Daniel studied Computer Science Engineering at the University of Texas at Arlington, attended Microsoft network training with Stream International and attended workshops on SQL and relational database theory with Sabre, making him well-rounded on both the development and networking sides of technology. He balanced these technical workshops with Model-netics management training.
Over the years of writing about technology, I am most proud of the emails and messages I receive from people who have read one of my articles and were able to fix a problem with their smartphone or feel more confident buying a particular device.
