Daniel Fone

Ruby/Rails Engineer


I’m a freelance software engineer, with 20 years of experience delivering web applications both independently and as a technical lead. My deepest expertise is with Ruby/Rails and PostgreSQL, but I have worked extensively with modern JavaScript frameworks and tooling.

I live near Christchurch, New Zealand with my wife and kids, and in recent years I've helped organise the Christchurch Ruby meetups and served as secretary on the Ruby New Zealand committee.

Much like Ruby, I try to be optimised for happiness — both my own and other people's.

I love working with good people to make useful things. If you're interested, get in touch! You can probably hire me.
