McQuillen Interactive is an interactive design company founded by Daniel McQuillen (more about me here ). I create rich web and desktop applications. I have a strong focus on user experience and practical, simple solutions to user needs.
I’ve worked with a number of groups to create simple and effective applications, often handling both the design and user interface as well as writing the code. That’s often helpful for budget-constrained projects that can’t afford a larger team of designers and coders.
I’ve built a fair number of applications used by people interested in energy-efficient buildings, such as the Windows and Daylighting Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Labs.
I also support groups who want to offer e-learning websites. That used to mean building and managing Open edX, but I've moved on to writing a custom LMS and analytics dashboard from the ground up. ( More about that here.)
I am especially interested in helping organizations use technology to become more sustainable and help the world meet the challenges of climate change.
I’m based in Hobart, Australia.
