I like Ruby, portable architecture, type systems and mentoring.

Hi 👋🏻, nice to meet you.

I’m a staff software engineer who has created full-stack web applications for more than a decade. My focus is on combining the best of object-oriented and functional philosophies while meditating on novel architecture approaches, especially for Ruby applications. Teaching the next generation of Rubyist is incredibly important to me, and I’m currently thinking through modern Ruby courses to replace the Ruby boot camps that have gone out of favor.

I’m working on my writing discipline and accepting new work through my development agency, Audacious Aardvark. Additionally, I offer mentoring slots on my calendar. Reach out to me on LinkedIn or max@audaciousaardvark.com for more information.
