Emmanuel Hayford | About Me

Emmanuel Hayford, Ruby on Rails consultantNungwi, Zanzibar

I’m Ruby programmer based in Poland working as an independent Ruby on Rails consultant. Though I try to avoid it, I can work with some frontend technologies.

I’m learning more about HTTP/2 and the internals of web frameworks like Ruby on Rails. Besides staring at computer screens, I like astrophysics and boxing. I co-edit This Week In Rails.

At the moment, I’m working on my first book which will be a collection of Ruby idioms, tips and tricks with explanation, use cases and examples.

I share Ruby, Rails and web development tips on Twitter frequently, if you like this kind of stuff, you can find me on Twitter. I’m on GitHub too of course. Here’s my email: hi[at]manny[dot]codes if you’d like to get in touch.
