Daniel Vaughan

I’m Daniel Vaughan. I love creating software that people value and enabling others to do the same.

I enable teams to deliver business value through software, fast and sustainably. The majority of my current work is building cloud-native systems typically using microservice or serverless architectures.

I work at the European Bioinformatics Institute. I have worked on the European Nucleotide Archive, BioSamples and was Technical Lead for the Ingestion component of the Human Cell Atlas Data Coordination Platform.

I aim to use the right tool for the job. I have an extensive background in Java and Spring but also enjoy working with Go and a bit of Python. Other technologies I work with day-to-day include Docker, Kubernetes, Amazon Web Services and a range of databases and infrastructure tools.

II am particularly passionate about community and skills development. I run the Genome Campus Software Community and EMBL-EBI Technical Seminars Programme, bringing people together to share their ideas and expertise. I am an advocate of the benefits technology brings but also mindful of the challenges it can cause and seek out many perspectives.
