I work with Rails for ~13 years (and React.js for 4+ years) and I have experience building products from the conception to production to scale. From the data model, to a stable production release, through a series of small working releases. I am currently working full time as a Rails Consultant while building my own products, contributing to OSS, and maintaining a few customer Rails apps (some I've built, some I've inherited)! Here are scenarios I will be a great fit to your company: Scenario #1: My team has no Sr Rails Developers and we are having issues. As a Sr Developer I will be able to help identify and solve issues, contribute to your code base, improve your process, and setup your team for success. I can work on a part-time capacity every other month, or 1 week per month, or something that that fits your short term needs. Scenario #2: My has 1 (or 2) Sr Rails Developers and they are overwhelmed. This is also a common situation for a lot of small companies. And I will be able to quickly be a helping hand, put out some fires, and help get a better visibility of the needs in the short to mid term. And contribute fixing bugs, building features, refactoring code, adding automated tests etc. Scenario #3: I have a 5+ years old Rails app and I need help. As a Sr Developer working with Rails for 13+ years I will help improve code quality, fix bugs, add test coverage, upgrade Ruby, Rails, and dependencies in general, find missing indexes in your DB and identify controllers with high object allocation causing a poor user experience. Here is a short list of my core expertise: 1. Ruby and Rails upgrade 2. Webpacker to esbuild migration 3. Data modeling, product conception, and MVPs 4. Performance improvements 5. Identify and help pay technical debt 6. 3rd party API integration: either for SSO or for data replication (*) I am currently available only for remote & part/full-time work. (*) I have experience integrating Rails applications to SSO into various OAuth servers and consume data from Google Classroom, ADP Marketplace, Openpath, Paychex, EHS Insight, Zoho, to name a few.

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...

Junior Dev with an artistic background and a creative approach to problem solving.

I believe my work history showcases a balance between a broad degree of technical knowledge, customer-facing hospitality, and mentorship, coupled with an excellent foundation in software engineering fundamentals. My most recent project build (utilizing; Ruby, React, PostgreSQL) is a web app that helps artists generate new musical ideas while fostering a sense of collaboration and community. Additionally, I’ve started doing contract work for Pushgig/ATXOnstage where I handle data aggregation and management for music- related sites using Node.js and Typescript requiring various API calls and JSON parsing. In my previous position as SME, I developed a knack for taking complex solutions and procedures from the developers at Accenture/WhatsApp and reiterating it to our customer agents by designing easy-to-understand training materials driving QA results, and increasing employee engagement. This is a skill that I have developed throughout my career; whether as a mentor/trainer in the hospitality industry, a surf coach for NLand, or as a personal setup specialist for Apple. I’ve been able to use my empathy, and creativity to help guide both teams and individuals to be successful in situations that may be unfamiliar to them. As a lifelong learner, I understand the struggles and self-doubt that come with learning daunting new tasks. I am proud of my recent success in completing an intense software engineering program at the highly rated Flatiron school which gives me a robust understanding of core programming concepts and a proven ability to quickly acquire complex skill sets. With a unique understanding of the relationship between tech, and community,
