About Me

I was a tech lead at the Israeli Military Intelligence, then worked at Google London on Android, and then at Magic Leap, on an AI pipeline for world understanding. I also taught at Tel Aviv university, as a lecturer on information security, advanced software design, and impact-oriented programming.

Today I provide software design and development services, specializing in code generation and meta-programming, and teach courses to individuals and organizations.

Feel free to drop me a line at dan.gittik@gmail.com.
