Freelance developer

I am a freelance developer (I do mainly Ruby on Rails websites for a living) with a special interest in free-software, GNU/Linux and programming languages (Python, Ruby, Javascript, Haskell, Erlang, Scala...). Check my website if you want to hire me:

Favorite programming quotes

This is the Unix philosophy: Write programs that do one thing and do it well. Write programs to work together. Write programs to handle text streams, because that is a universal interface.

Data dominates. If you've chosen the right data structures and organized things well, the algorithms will almost always be self-evident. Data structures, not algorithms, are central to programming. Let the data guide the programming.

Functional programming is like describing your problem to a mathematician. Imperative programming is like giving instructions to an idiot.

Controlling complexity is the essence of computer programming.
