Ruby on Rails
For web applications my technology of choice is Ruby on Rails.
I write code using Test Driven Development.
I strive for clean, simple to understand and easy to change software.
Nice things people have said
Andy is a dedicated and passionate software craftsman. An inspiring mentor and advocate for best practice OO design and TDD, I had the pleasure of working under him for 3 years. I learnt more from him in that time than I did in my previous 10+ year career in software development.
Having you around for the first 6 months [of my career] has sort of been like having a male embodiment of Sandi Metz sat next to me, and I'm hugely appreciative. It's very rare to find talent, experience and patience combined but when they are, they make the best teachers going!
Andy is the epitome of the pragmatic programmer, with a great depth of knowledge, and a passion for all things development.
Andy is a great guy to work with, you’ll want him on your team. Expect a high level of work that has been well thought out. The team he led at 1minus1 have a lot of respect for him and valued his leadership - he is missed
I have coached at a RailsGirls London weekend in 2015 and also during their weekly meetups.
I love mentoring and am looking forward to the next oppertunity I have to do some more.
