Rob Lacey

Brighton, UK -

Software Engineer working since 2008 with Ruby / Ruby on Rails, love a bit of Elixir / Phoenix. I also poke through other people's code and make PRs for OpenSource Ruby projects that sometimes make it. Currently working at Juniper Education making code for UK schools.

So... I'm writing a book

No really I am. Well two. Over the past year I’ve spent too much time trying to solve the Staff Scheduling Problem and learned a bit about using OR-Tools as a constraint solver. I thought this would be perfect to put my findings into wordsings and publish it. It might just help someone else, how selfless am I? Right?

I could jump in on that but then realistically I’m still learning, but I have spent the last 13 years working with Ruby / Rails and having to fix bugs, and make horrid hacks, and get all of the stuffs working. I realised I could cut my teeth on something I have more experience of and all the sorts of things I post on here, if I remember, and in more detail.

So this year we will have Ruby Expletives (things I learned whilst swearing at Ruby).
