I have a lot of experience in media production. Back in the 90’s I worked as a Studio Manager and producer, I then became more involved with developing Interactive Media. I became a fan of rails back in 2012 and dove in head first. Over the years I have worked on some pretty cool projects. I am here to share what I can and help you along your path into the world of application development using Ruby on Rails.
