The platforms I focus on are web application development with Ruby on Rails and Android development. I have experience from building brand new applications from the ground up, as well as taking existing codebases to morph it to meet client requirements.
As much as I enjoy talking about the latest trends in software development, I understand that programming languages are just tools to solve problems. I take a pragmatic approach to software development that will best solve business problems.
