What types of design and development do you do? (UI, visual design, CSS, etc. – any or all!)

I've been a full-time Ruby on Rails developer for almost 6 years. I'm quite comfortable writing HTML, JavaScript/CoffeeScript, and CSS/Sass. While I can generally make things look and act the way I want them to, I struggle with what the layouts/design and interactions should be.

What are you most excited about getting out of this meetup?

Filling in the gaping hole in my knowledge of UX a bit and meeting UX'ers that I can call on for help with projects.


Hi, I'm Derek, a freelance full-stack web developer specializing in Ruby on Rails and all the other buzzwords generally associated with it.
