Dan Gribbin

Hi, I'm Dan

I'm Dan Gribbin, a Senior Software Engineer at Brand Networks.
CSS, JavaScript and teaching front-end dev are my primary obsessions.

I wrote jQuery Tag-This, a simple-yet-powerful tagging plugin.

I teach web development at the Rochester Brainery and for Girl Develop It.


I've spoken at a few jQuery Conferences– San Diego and Austin. You can find slides and video links for those talks below.

Where You Can Find Me

Location: Rochester, NY

I came to Rochester in 2012 to write code at Brand Networks in the High Falls neighborhood. Rochester is a fantastic city with some incredibly talented people doing awesome things with technology, but the small businesses growing in Rochester are my favorite part.

While you're in town, visit Record Archive for music, The Daily Refresher and Cheshire for cocktails, The Owl House and Cure for sustenance, Pour Coffee Parlor for some of the best coffee in the city, Rochester Brainery for a variety of affordable classes and workshops, and other awesome small businesses like Abode, The Little Theatre, and Roc Brewing Co.
