'URL to SQL'  full stack web developer

Bio

👋 Senior Software Developer of Ruby on Rails and JavaScript applications. What I enjoy most about web development is that it boils down to effective communication. I work best on small and medium size remote teams who employ tools like Slack and Jira to ship software. I try to roll my R's when I say SCRUM. Feel free to contact me if my profile matches your needs. And, thanks for stopping by!

better now than never

The nitty gritty details of data structures, algorithms, and the underlying math do not come naturally for me. However, I do find the subjects fascinating. It is easy to feel that the level of granularity is a waste of time, or taking too much time.

Yet I should apply the same mindset I had when taking accounting classes 13 years ago. That is, the tedious nature of details takes time for everyone who studies them. I happen to be learning these things now. Better now than never.

I am learning what they are, why they are, and how to think with them. The purpose of these topics is because I am hitting the limits of the machine, and that’s pretty cool. It is possible for me to write code which a machine cannot process in the required amount of time.
