Name: Dan Healy
Title: Full stack Ruby dev (and wannabe game developer)
How I got into Ruby:
In 2006/2007 I was working as a logic design engineer using Verilog, but I really wanted to try making a multiplayer game. I had a friend who worked at a big Flash game company, he suggested that I try working with him on a Rails app.
The app didn’t really work out and neither did the job, but I’d seen the light of open source software and there was no going back to discovering that you wasted 3 weeks of work because you missed the “this promised major hardware feature doesn’t actually work” entry at the end of a long errata sheet.
Three years and some odd side projects later, I started working as a Rails dev for a company in the Music / ticketing industry.
Other languages I love working in:
MacBook Pro 2012, I’m definitely due for an upgrade, but it does have 16GB ram and 512GB SSD.
iPhone 7+, iPhone 5S, iPhone X^2 soon?
Apple TV 4
A very very cheap OEM android tablet
I sat in about 50 office chairs before settling on a cheap one that “felt right”
Shameless plug: Currently looking for work!
