“...I've been working since 2008 with Ruby / Ruby on Rails, love a bit of Elixir / Phoenix and learning Rust. I also poke through other people's code and make PRs for OpenSource Ruby projects that sometimes make it. Currently working for InPay...”

In The Lab

The Lab is a place to test out stuff in a live Rails (now 7) application. This is basically the equivalent of scribbles and notes that pile up on my desk.


Working on a number of Ruby gems so I don't have to write the same code for nearly every project I work on.

  • interactor-stopwatch - a miniature Interactor extension that is watching the clock.
  • m3ta - versatile meta tags for Rails
  • ouroboros - infinite circular arrays (in progress)


I do contribute to OpenSource, sometimes they get merged sometimes not.
