Joe McCann is the Founder and CEO of NodeSource and is a self-taught hacker, programmer, and designer with more than seventeen years of web, mobile and software development experience. Joe’s early obsession with math, technical analysis, and pattern recognition has helped shape his colorful background, ranging from a chef to a DJ to even a trader on Wall Street.
With Node.js, Joe recognized the pattern early on — that it would be a radically transformational technology. Since the project’s inception in late 2009, Joe has been actively and intimately involved in the open source project’s success.
Most recently Joe decided to laser focus on the enterprise use cases not being addressed by the open source community, and thus NodeSource was born. Prior to NodeSource, Joe was the CTO of the award-winning ad agency, Mother. Joe has a Bachelor of Science in Philosophy with a focus in Logic.
