Dave Rael is the host of the Developer On Fire podcast. He is, first and foremost, a father of 3 wonderful children. That is the role in which he takes the most joy and gets the most benefit. He is also a husband, podcaster, software developer and architect, and a philosopher. When he’s not playing with kids, recording and listening to his own voice, or building distributed systems, he likes to play basketball and racquetball, and lift weights. His mission is to inspire others, expose the humanity of developers, improve communication, and unify humans.
