Full Stack Developer with 10+ of Rails Experience
I learned Ruby at a bootcamp over 10 years ago, and have been developing Ruby on Rails applications since. I love the framework and especially the community around it. I am passionate about building scalable maintainable applications. With my recent React experience, I now feel quite comfortable in all parts of the stack. I definitely enjoy pair programming and have mentored many other developers along the way. Career highlights: * Implemented the first iteration of travel protection. A feature which has generated millions in revenue to date. * Architected and developed a user onboarding tool. This tool increased the engagement metrics by nearly 80%. * Designed a scheduling and notification system for a medical service application that has sent millions of notifications to patients. Let's build something great together!
Ruby developer since early 2000s
Great at refactoring, audit and developing of legacy apps as well as building apps from scratch with modern Ruby and Rails. Focused primarily on back-end, having an understanding of front-end as well. A fan of DRY, DSLs, Rails Engines and Active Record. Not a big fan of SPA, micro-services as well as extensive front-end development or DevOps chores. Can bring your decade old outdated MVP back to life step by step without rewriting it from scratch or hiring a new team. Normally you have two choices: 1) a legacy team considering their creation to be great as it is or 2) a new one telling you that the app should be thrown in the trash and replaced with a brand new one using their hyping shiny tools. Able to learn your legacy app in days — without a documentation or help of former developers if abandoned. Can learn your favorite frameworks on my own and jump in fast. Can use a lot of secondary languages for audit or bug-fixing on an occasional basis.

Experience with Ruby on Rails I have had the privilege of growing alongside Ruby on Rails, starting my journey with this technology in 2009. Each version of Rails has offered unique learning opportunities, and I'm grateful for the insights gained through these experiences. 🚂 Rails 2.3.5 (2009 - 2010): My initial experience with Rails was during my final college year. At that time, I was working on a CodeIgniter (php framework) library for my thesis that logs and creates a UML to help developers debug code issues. The moment I actually read through and worked on a production Rails app which was a game on Facebook, I realized my thesis would not be useful in production. 😅The logs of Rails was really intuitive. 🚂 Rails 3 (2010): This version was a really big leap for Rails because of the Merb team merge. A lot of things were introduced on Rails on this version. The main issue at that time was migrating 2.3.X apps had a lot of issues, including Gems no longer working. 🚂 Rails 4 (2013): Transitioning to Rails 4 was a smoother experience. In January/Feb that year there was a mass assignment issue with Rails (where we could do SQL injections). On Rails 4, they made strong paramaters a default. 🚂 Rails 5: Turbolinks 5 and Action Cable was introduced. I think this was Rails answer to SPAs and hybrid mobile apps. During this time, I learned Turbolinks 5 and used Turbolink-iOS adapter to build and launch an iOS app on the Appstore. 🚂 Rails 6: Although ActiveStorage was introduced in 5.2. The projects I've worked on started adoption ActiveStorage at version 6. This is mainly because when you used ActionText which was introduced at Rails 6, you see the advantage of ActiveStorage when images are easily embedded on the WYSIWYG. 🚂 Rails 7: On this release, Hotwire became the default front-end framework for Rails. Hotwire included tools like Turbo + Strada to make it easier for smaller teams to launch cross-platform apps. Experience with Front-end Technologies I have extensive experience in front-end development, particularly with React and similar technologies, spanning over a decade. Here's a breakdown of my journey. ＜⁄＞2012: Began with BackboneJS, where I first delved into MVC architectures in front-end development. ＜⁄＞2013: Transitioned to EmberJS, which I found to offer a more robust MVC framework compared to BackboneJS. ＜⁄＞2015: Adopted AngularJS, facing challenges with code organization due to the lack of standardized practices at that time. ＜⁄＞2016 - 2017: Shifted my focus to React/Redux, a significant leap in terms of code structure and organization. The official Redux documentation greatly aided in establishing a consistent code organization strategy. ＜⁄＞2018 - 2020: Integrated StimulusJS into my projects. ＜⁄＞2021 onwards: Embraced the Hotwire stack, continuing my journey with the latest in front-end technology.
