My Business Card

Hi! If you’re reading this, it means you have one of my business cards. And that means I want to keep in touch with you. It means that you’re doing awesome work, that we got along well, and you’re interested in the work I do.

What I do

I help development teams at medium-sized tech companies ship better code more quickly. And I do that without making anyone work harder, or longer hours.

Do other leaders feel like your dev team moves too slow? Do you want to learn how to debug and fix that problem? Get in touch and let’s talk about it.

I also write clear, simple tutorials to help Rails developers write fast, clean, well-tested apps. And I wrote a book, Practicing Rails that helps people learn Rails, without getting overwhelmed.

I’ve spoken at RubyConf and RailsConf, guest hosted podcasts, and done other assorted work around the internet – you can find links to all of that here.

My contact info

If you have this card, it means I want to talk more with you. The best way to get in touch is email. Here is my direct email address. Send me a mail there, and it’ll go straight to me. You can also find me on twitter here.

I would love it if you just reached out and said hello – I’m incredibly interested in learning more about what you do, and how I can help you out. Send me an email, and let’s talk!

Who am I?

I'm Justin Weiss, a developer turned dev manager at Avvo, where I've worked on large Rails apps since 2007. I first found Ruby in 2004, and it's been my favorite language ever since. Ruby brought the joy of programming back to me after years of Java, and I'll always love it for that.

I've written a few popular Ruby gems, including robut and resque_unit, and I've contributed to many more.

I live in Seattle, WA with my beautiful wife and two daughters.

I'd love to hear from you, so you should send me an email or follow me on twitter.
