With over a decade of experience writing web applications professionally, I've overcome all sorts of problems. I have a special love for helping people scale existing web applications, but I also do love a good front-end CSS puzzle. Most importantly, I'm a friendly fellow who is happy to talk code with anyone.
(I'm new to CodeMentor, so I've significantly reduced my rate, so I can talk with more people!)
I started writing Rails back at version 1.0, and have run it in production since. During my many years using Rails for both tiny and huge projects, I've seen all sorts of quirks, problems, fixes, and breakthroughs.
While I started out with Ruby for use with Rails, Ruby quickly earned a special place in my heart in its own right, with its expressive syntax and cohesive semantics. I've written many ruby applications, usually related to web or network services of some sort.
