Hi there 👋

Welcome to my GitHub home. I'm Dan Sloan, a consulting software developer.

I run a consultancy called Lucid Horizons. We are based in Melbourne, Australia, on the lands of the Bunurong People, and I wish to acknowledge them as Traditional Owners.

🔭 I’m currently working on ...


  • Strawberry - using this for several projects, and hopefully providing some contributions to the cool new kid on the block of GraphQL and Python


I'm rebuilding my presence online after a bit of a mental health hiatus. I'm trying to do this while keeping social media to a minimum.


Most of my client work is confidential, but one of my favourites is WiFi Tribe, a company helping professionals that want to travel and work remotely in a community of like-minded people.

🌱 I’m currently learning ...

  • React Location - it's still in development, but I've been trying it out and enjoying the experience so far.
  • Channels - I love Django, but I really wanted to start looking at more modern approaches like FastAPI. Channels is proving to be a great intermediary, providing much of the advantages of async without losing the benefits of a mature framework like Django.
  • FastAPI - huge fan of FastAPI's approach, especially Dependency Injection. I've been a bit disappointed in most of the ORM options so far...but...
  • Tortoise ORM - I've had a number of recommendations from people I trust, so I'm starting to learn and play with Tortoise. Django's ORM is still my goto, but Tortoise seems really interesting!

📫 How to reach me: ...

  • For commercial tings, contact the business at Lucid Horizons
  • For personal tings, Twitter is best! @Lucid_Dan; DMs remain open (so far)
  • I'm largely uncontactable in any other private way, unless you already know me.
