Patrick Reagan doing business as
D3 Tools

My passion is to work with small and medium sized business to translate their business needs into elegant data tools. I've been designing and developing custom data tools since 1996 – first with Walt Disney Television Animation, where I headed a small software engineering team responsible for production database application development. In 2004 I turned to contracting and consulting using FileMaker software as my primary development environment.

Formerly operating as Deodar Designs Data Tools, the name was shortened to D3 Tools in 2014, before it was clear how significant the d3 JavaScript library would become. (Please don't be mad at me Mike!)

My primary focus switched from FileMaker to open source development tools in 2017 in order to offer more power, control and cost-savings for ambitious systems.
