I’m glad you are here. I created this site in 2013 to write about my journey learning to code in Ruby on Rails and Objective-C. Below are links to all my posts. I’m still writing about technology, but now doing so at strand-consulting.com

In this post, I’ll bring @plataformatec and @seyhunak’s gifts together and easily put Devise sign-in and sign-up forms into Twitter Bootstrap modals.…
It doesn’t see much traffic anymore, but at its peak in 2015 the site saw 4,000 views and 600 visitors a month.
