What do you get when you cross a photographer, a philosophy nerd, a science lover, a voracious reader, an almost-adequate writer, and a software engineer? You'd probably get someone like me. I have a BA in philosophy from the University of California, Santa Cruz, and two years of experience building web applications and managing technology stacks.
I am currently working as a software engineer at a mid-level startup in San Francisco, where I develop and maintain a large logistics platform based on Ruby on Rails.
- A simple and flexible eventing library for Ruby. Provides a clean interface and intuitive configuration options.
- An application that collects application performance data from Tracebin agents. Aggregates and displays 24 hours of data, including endpoint performance, database query and view rendering overhead, and general system health.
- The Ruby/Rack agent for Tracebin. Installs as a Rack middleware, and instruments various components of a web application, including response time, SQL queries, and system health. Also measures background job performance. Asynchronously sends all data collected to Tracebin for ingestion.
- My Trello Rails
- A Trello-style application with a Rails backend and a Backbone frontend. Integrates with various third-party resources, and is backed by a robust test suite.
