Heavy use, I use it in a vanilla fashion for AWS related applications and managing Hadoop jobs. I use Sinatra for super slim web utilities/applications that need to work quickly. I use Rails for back-end services as well as larger MVC applications. Ruby is a great language due to expressiveness and readability, it's also very easy to create a DSL using Ruby.
I work with many stacks, here are some recent ones: - Rails4 as web-service, some views for management, uses PostgreSQL on a Bamboo Heroku application, and relies on SendGrid for notifications. - AngularJS using both Rails4 web-service and NodeJS back-end running CouchDB on Heroku Bamboo - AWS EC2 running vanilla ruby application and NodeJS processes to monitor and spawn Hadoop data jobs, used EMR, Data Pipeline, and AWS RDS using MySQL 5.6
I'm new to the area so forgive repetition with your previous topics: 1. Performance benefits of Ruby2 and writing efficient code 2. Code scoring, what makes 'clean maintainable' code 3. Writing Rails models with concerns, does this help the fat model issues and how does it effect model testability
Currently freelancing (self employed) with several firms, was previously a software engineer at One Medical Group.
Friendly, passionate full stack web applications developer with about 10 years of experience, looking to network with some new people in the area.
