I have worked with Ruby and Rails for 7 years now and have built web applications for over 12 years. I've worked for a handful of high profile startups and have experience working on large scale, maintainable web applications built with a variety of technologies. I would be happy to help you learn the basics of building web applications, troubleshoot any issues you may have, understand best practices when it comes to development, or help wrap your head around building maintainable software with Ruby, Rails and Javascript. Reach out and schedule an intro session! I would love to talk with you.

I have been building web applications for 11+ years. A natural part of building anything on the web is having a clear understanding and knowledge of HTML and CSS.

Clear communication, listens actively, explains why he is doing things. I get to learn how to tighten up my code, while also getting questions answered. And he's good at asking about and setting expectations for session length, and how we work together. All good.

Great depth of knowledge. We didn't have time to fully solve the problem but we eliminated one by one most of the possible causes. A great lesson in debugging.
