About Me

Hi, I’m David Tang. I’m a product focussed software engineer from Los Angeles currently working at Verizon Digital Media Services. My expertise is in web technologies, particularly JavaScript. I have lots of experience with Ember, Ember Data, and JSON:API. I believe in building products that deliver business value. I also value testing, convention over configuration, and embracing standards.

My passion lies on the front-end building great user experiences, but I also have professional experience on the backend working with PHP, Laravel, Node, and relational databases.

I’m the author of the book Ember Data in the Wild and the SitePoint video course Test-Driven Development in Node.js.

I’m also a part-time lecturer at the University of Southern California, teaching web development courses to students from all backgrounds.

Outside of my tech life, I live a vegan lifestyle, play ice hockey, and enjoy traveling the world with my wife.
