Passionate about the craft of creating great software

There's an inflection point in every startup, where you've got your MVP and some initial customers, and now you need to scale everything. Not just the performance of your application, but entire features to support a new kind of larger customer. You need to grow the team, not just engineering, but product and customer support, and also incorporate the tools to support them. This is where I'm in my groove, and at my most effective. I've grown teams from 3 to 20+, improved application performance while handling 100x the load, and designed and built features from the ground up in an iterative and agile manner to minimize time-to-delivery while maximizing flexibility for future work. I have over 20 years' experience as a "web application" developer, in a variety of languages and technologies (PHP, Perl). I've been a Rails developer since there was a Rails, releasing my first app on 0.11 in 2005, and have kept up with it since. I'm comfortable working at entire levels of the app stack, from tweaking drop shadows in SCSS to optimizing database queries and debugging stack traces. I have the experience to know when I need to crank out some quick and dirty code vs take the time to architect a foundation that will scale and provide a platform upon which the team can build stable features for years. I'll work with other teams/departments within the company and customers to work to figure out optimal solutions to problems, gathering and balancing the various tradeoffs involved. I also really enjoying pairing with senior developers, since we can both learn something new, as well as mentoring and leveling up the juniors and mids. I'm involved in the various Ruby communities, have spoken at Rubyconf, and have frequented the local Ruby group for years. I've been involved with major Ruby open-source development in the past, like Merb and DataMapper, and am still an active contributor to smaller projects such as Dry-rb. If you're an early stage startup that needs someone to scale both your product and your team, then I'd be a great choice to help you out.

Hello! I'm thrilled to introduce myself as a software engineer with a deep passion for coding and web development. My journey as a developer began with an insatiable curiosity and a desire to create innovative solutions. With a solid foundation in IT and 1 year of professional experience, I have dedicated myself to mastering Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, and React, along with a strong proficiency in PostgreSQL and MySQL. One recent milestone in my career that I'm particularly proud of is my contribution to the Gradready project. Collaborating with an Australian client, I played a pivotal role in implementing online MCQ exams using Rails associations and schedulers. This project not only honed my full-stack development skills but also demonstrated my ability to deliver high-quality solutions to meet client requirements. Additionally, I had the opportunity to work on the Sticky Guide ecommerce website, employing Rails 5 and React to create an engaging user experience. Continuous learning is a fundamental aspect of my professional growth. I am constantly seeking new knowledge and staying up-to-date with the latest trends and technologies in the field. Recently, I immersed myself in the intricacies of RESTful APIs, expanding my understanding and applying it effectively to my previous projects. Passion drives me in everything I do, and web development is no exception. I find great joy in crafting elegant and efficient code, turning ideas into tangible products that make a difference. The ever-evolving nature of the industry fuels my excitement, as there is always something new to explore and innovate upon. One area where I excel is my ability to approach problem-solving from unique angles. I possess excellent verbal and written communication skills, which I've refined through my client interactions. This allows me to understand client needs, translate them into technical requirements, and deliver solutions that exceed expectations. My strong grasp of RESTful APIs empowers me to design and develop robust and scalable applications. What sets me apart is my unique blend of skills and experiences. From my diverse technical expertise to my adaptability in working with different frameworks and languages, I bring versatility and a fresh perspective to any project. I thrive in collaborative environments, leveraging my skills to complement and enhance the team's overall success. I am excited to embark on a new chapter in my career, Given the opportunity, I am confident that my passion for web development, problem-solving abilities, and dedication to delivering exceptional results will make me a valuable asset.
