Meta Pioneers Community

Internationally Developer Community for Meta.

From 2013 – 2015, I took the Meta Kickstarter Community and grew it into a developer community, building & publishing apps.

“Developer events are better with Brennan.

Limitless energy, good spirits and a can do attitude make Brennan a fantastic facilitator for developer events. Hundreds of developers from across the USA and across the world, from 1-2 person shops to high growth startups, to large corporates have benefited from Brennan’s ability to develop and manage high quality hands on training sessions. Brennan is inspiring, full of energy and great at bringing out the best in those around him. I have no hesitation in recommending Brennan to initiate or bring renewed life to a program of developer engagement, hackathons or formal training sessions.”

~ Ben Sand, co-founder of Meta

Meta Company Culture

Brennan embodies passion of living life in bold and adventurous endeavors. His warmth, infectious smile, and Can Do attitude makes any one he meets feel immediately connected, at ease, and grounded in knowing encouragement and support is readily available. He easily welcomes the unknown, able to dive in and figure things out while in the process; this was consistently demonstrated with the Pioneers Team when delivering training sessions.

He is able to voice opinions and suggestions in a manner that is conducive to team spirit and consistently looks for ways to enhance team outcome. You will find his energy and output refreshing to any team that focuses on executing possibility, a necessary attribute within a start up company producing current disruptive technology.
