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 programming languages huh?

Before I started with Ruby, I had worked with Perl, PHP, Python, and BASIC (ok, back before I was 10). Ruby has stuck and has been my goto for everything. I feel like this has left me rather stuck and lacking any kind of contrast to other solutions, problem solving, perspective on how to create effective software. So my list of things to look at over the course of the rest of my life

- Ruby
- Go
- Rust
- Python
- Elixir
- Erlang
- Crystal
- Haskell
- Elm
- C++ (Unreal Engine)

With any luck exposure to all of this will make my brain explode in interesting artistic patterns.
