What I’m doing now

"This is a now page, and if you have your own site, you should make one, too." - Derek Sivers.
Alongside my professional endeavors there are a few things I am personally working on in the programming world and outside of it.


Updated June, 2024 from London.

Learn

I am currently collaborating with an exceptional mentor from First Ruby Friend, created by Andy Croll, on a specialized API-only Rails application focused on books. Each week, he provides me with intellectually stimulating assignments designed to advance my professional development. My objective is to attain the role of a Senior Developer within the next five years.

Practice

I'm diving deeper into back-end skills by applying a design pattern for The OA version 2.0, renamed 'Hashtag Activism', from Dive Into Design Patterns by Alexander Shvets. The core of the app is a to-do list but long-term goals are to use Artificial Intelligence to respond to current events with actionable resources in real time. Turn hashtags into actions, retweets into revolution.

Passion project

Connect

I attended the Rails World 2023 Conference. A two-day, dual-track community conference that showcases technical discussions, live demonstrations, interactive workshops, and keynote presentations. I was eager to meet new faces in the Rails community (as one myself) and felt delighted to connect. Out of that conference, I met a group of women and we've been collaborating on an open source project together ever since!
