Paul Dowman

I help software development succeed. I help lead the App Platform at Shopify.

I like adventures and I like solving problems. In my 25 year career I have built many products, led software development teams, and built a successful company that became well known in our niche (and won a Toronto Board of Trade Business Excellence Award too). I have created popular open source projects, organized conferences with hundreds of people, built a successful training program, and built trust with all whom I have done business with.

Give me a goal and I'll make it happen.

I'm the organizer of the Assert(js) conference, a co-organizer of TorontoJS, organizer of GraphQL Toronto and other events.

I occasionally consider small consulting engagements.
