I started with Ruby in 2004 and tried Rails for the first time in 2005. I've worked professionally with Rails since 2010 and am a co-organizer of the Bangkok Ruby Meetup and RubyConf Thailand.
I worked at several different product startups and spent about 5 years consulting on many different Rails projects. For 1.5 of those years, I was the CTO of a consultancy. I have experience in many different domains including fintech. I worked in both B2C and B2B contexts.
I also have quite a lot of experience in leading teams and managing developers, and like developing/contributing to processes that make developers' lives easier as well as mentoring younger engineers.
I'm not particularly interested in full-time employment but am always looking for interesting challenges on a contract basis. But who knows, depending on what you are working on I may well change my mind.
Some of my work/other info:
- I wrote a gem called methodfinder, originally for the students of RubyLearning
- I fixed two bugs in JRuby and one in CRuby
- I used to be a top 10 Ruby user on StackOverflow but mostly stopped actively using the site a couple of years ago.
- I wrote several paid posts for AppSignal's Ruby Magic blog, Human Readable magazine and others
