Top Gem Developers of May 2017
Experienced full-stack developer. I see code as an art form.
"Whoever travels without a guide needs 200 years for a two-day journey." Whether you're just starting out on the journey to becoming a great coder, or whether you're somewhere in the middle and you just got stuck, don't let it hold you back longer than necessary. I have over 8 years of experience with multiple software stacks. I started on Java with Spring Framework, then switched to Ruby on Rails. These days I work mostly with Node.js and CoffeeScript. I've worked with 4-person startups, billion dollar companies and everything in between. My goal is to get your issue resolved as quickly as possible, and give you all the tools and knowledge necessary to *understand* why you had this issue, and how to prevent it going forward.
I'm a freelance developer based in Armenia, CO, specialising in building web apps, consider myself a full-stack developer but I tend to work more on the back-end. I also enjoy testing new libraries in my spare time. I like drinks, Mac OS and Linux. I enjoy building stuff, investigating new technologies and general hacking. You can find me on popular Slack groups for developers. I love to communicate and discuss ideas to figure out real world problems using software.
Software engineer and Web Technology Enthusiast
Top Ruby on Rails Mentor of January, February, March, April & May 2017 | Experienced (7+ years) and friendly Ruby on Rails Developer (with passion for helping others learn) | 650+ Sessions
Senior Software Engineer NBC Team at Railroad19
I have a passion for integrating my background in design and user experience to empower users while building applications. Currently I'm working full-stack, bringing together front and back to deliver an uninterrupted experience to the user. Error handling, accounting for edge-cases, and predicting user behavior are all priorities when working on new deliverables. I'm also an advocate for a strong development community within any team I'm working with. Having standards, altruistic tendencies, open communication, mentorship and peer review I truly believe are what makes a great team, and makes a happy developer.
Developer at Koombea
I'm a software developer with about nine years of experience in a variety of technologies. I focus strongly on quality workmanship and understanding more than just the software I'm working on to be able to address the real underlying problems, rather than just drop a patch on the surface problem.
Ruby/Go Developer. Rails Girls London co-founder.
I've been a developer for around ten years now! I'm passionate about happiness and helping people figure out how to do the things they love, or even finding out what they are. In terms of programming that has been through mentoring, and through co-founding Rails Girls London back in 2013, which is an ongoing initiative to introduce women to programming so that they can decide if coding is part of the future they want for themselves. I think the best way to learn is to be given the opportunity and the space to figure something out for yourself, while having your mentor as your guide - that person who you can trust to keep you pointed in the right direction. So, as a mentor I like to take a coaching perspective where possible. This involves asking more questions and challenging beliefs as opposed to delivering commands and always giving the mentee the answer. Much of what I've learned here isn't necessarily through programming, but through my own experience of self-discovery. Having had a mentor, a guide, and a life coach, I've learned just how important it is to know that you're never alone.
