I'm a self-taught developer that works with Ruby on Rails since 2009, when I picked up the 'Agile Web Development with Rails' book for Rails 2.1, and haven't looked back since. I love the beauty of the Ruby language and the power tools Rails give me.

In recent years I've worked with both React and Vue for frontend heavy projects and started to love TypeScript. I'm a big fan of Stimulus and Turbo, which I use for most of my projects and I see as the way forward for the Rails ecosystem.

I've worked in Product related roles for years as well. This helps me get up to speed very fast and start delivering value as soon as possible. I write clean, tested code. I focus on delivering impact and a great user experience. I enjoying working both in existing, structured teams or as a single developer together with non-technical people.

I live in The Netherlands (UTC+1) and work remotely.

Dennis Paagman.
This is me.
