What would you like to learn or gain from participation in Mad-Railers?

Network with some other Ruby/Rails engineers to share best practices and to show off what kinds of cool work we've been doing.

What's your background with Rails and similar tech?

Been working in the industry for about 6 years. Just moved to Madison from the SF Bay Area and hoping to meet some fun people who are just as passionate about their work as I am. In my spare time, I've been working on an app called "My.Stocked.Kitchen" that's based on some previous work I did on Android called "myKitchen". It's a Rails app deployed on AWS using a MySQL backend, DelayedJob for queuing, and Memcached for caching that helps users plan and manage their kitchen. When I'm on the clock, I'm working remotely with my team in Mountain View, CA at Intuit on building a new support site experience for all of our QuickBooks customers. Again, it's a Rails app running in AWS (sound familiar).

Are you working with Rails professionally?

Yes at Intuit.


Fell in love with Ruby/Rails a couple years ago and have been building apps with it ever since!
