As of January this year I’m pleased to announce I will be working with the team at CitySafe.
CitySafe build tools to help emergency responders collaborate and communicate. These include mission critical apps in use daily by the Police, Government, and high profile financial and retail institutions. It’s predominately Ruby (on Rails) based so I’m looking forward to getting stuck in.
For those of you wondering about Working With Rails…. This remains under ownership of DSC and I have passed all the day to day running over to colleagues there. Prior to my departure I ensured that the Hackfests would continue up until March. Much thanks goes to Josette @ O'Reilly for the RailsConf ticket prizes.
All in all WWR has been an amazing project. I’m so pleased to have created it and see it grow from strength to strength benefiting the community so greatly. Many thanks to everyone who uses the site and contributed in some way over the past year. It has been fantastic to have your input and feedback.
I’ve heard many success stories from developers starting user groups as a result of finding each other on WWR, to getting a job through recommendations, collaborating on projects or helping to get Rails adopted in their workplace. Not forgetting to mention the numerous prizes given away through the regular Hackfests.
I hope it has benefited you in some way and continues to do so. Thanks everyone!
