On January 6th I joined the DEV team as a part-time core contractor. I joined this wonderful community in October 2016, when Ben messaged me about reposting two of my Medium posts on here.
I've been a Ruby dev since ~2004 and work in the language professionally since 2010. I'm a co-organizer of Bangkok's monthly Ruby meetup as well as RubyConf Thailand.
My last job before DEV was as Tech Lead for the financial services department of a "unicorn" startup. I decided to rather work for myself and on my terms and luckily DEV accommodates that through flexible contracting options.
Given the limited nature of my involvement at this point, my goals are simple:
- Leave everything I touch a little better than I found it.
- Share some of my experience as a consultant, CTO, and tech lead and see if we can incorporate some of that into DEV.
