Hi, As a ruby on rails developer I know what it takes to build a webapp from the ground up. To verify my experience, please check my github azeemh, and sign up for my free platform, Zedtopia. By seeing my open source code and reference projects you can see how I code in simple contexts. Going to see my work live on the web will better show you what I have built and what I am capable of coding in more complex and fully featured applications. Should we interview and agree to mutual NDA, I can also explain to you how I coded any features of interest and screen share as I walk you thru the source code, line by line. I have 2 apps live in production. Zedtopia is a socioeconomic network with democratic voting and social commerce. At this point, it's a full fledged product beyond mvp, migrated from ruby 2.7.6 & rails 5, to ruby 3.2 and rails 7, with a postgresql db. See https://www.zedtopia.com. Unlimit3d is an MVP 3d printing blockchain app, currently adding printing verification and purchase, with API partners, however users can currently sign up, upload, and share their files. Unlimit3d uses rails 7, ruby 3.2 and postgresql. See https://www.unlimit3d.com. I also helped to code connect.berniesanders.com for the 2015-2016 election cycle, which served over 200k simultaneous logged in users at any given time. Finally my personal website is found at http://www.azeemhussein.com, with my resume available at www.azeemhussein.com/resume. There you can see my designs, some cool interactive software exhibits, whitepapers, and more...

Rails developer with 20+ years experience

I've been obsessed with making stuff for the web since middle school and have been fascinated by dynamically typed languages for as long as I can remember. I started using rails for small school projects back when it was version 0.9. Shortly afterwards, I would have my first chance to use it professionally. As a solo dev, I wrote a full stack customer portal for a small IT company that allowed them to expand across the country while keeping a small staff. During that job, I had to deal with the quirks of FastCGI, the state of ruby 1.6 async network IO, and even had to build my own job queue with EventMachine. That application was the lifeblood of the company as I expanded and updated it through to Rails 5. Later in my career, I joined a scrappy startup as one of their earlier domestic engineering hires. I was brought on as BE lead to work on their massive monolith Rails app serving jsonapi to Ember and React SPAs. They had broken tests, minimal coverage, and lots of sporadic customer issues. I pushed us towards some practices that let us fix our suite, have higher code quality, and fewer incidents. We made all of these improvements while I was closely working with the product team and the front end developers so we could release a constant stream of well scoped features. We expanded and quickly rolled out a whole new product line during COVID. During that time, I got to manage a small team and work on a product that at peak saw 2 million requests per second. I think of software development as a craft. There's nothing like building things that have a huge positive impact on people and doing it with a lot of care and quality.
