I help small | medium technical teams deliver the damn software

The goal is quality software, a wicked sharp team and good sustainable business.

I achieve results with technical skills and by fostering a sustainably productive culture suited to software development.

I bring experience and a powerful professional network. You have the business, I know the technology and the people who make it tick.

Like any good 2.0 they added a ton more fields, features, removed character limits and it was suddenly ID3v2. The latest spec is ID3v2.4 while the most commonly adopted one seems to be ID3v2.3. I recently found myself having a reason to dig into this specification.

LiveView on Nerves


I've played with Nerves for almost as long as I've been learning and using Elixir. Nerves is a fantastic way of working with hardware along with the BEAM virtual machine and it is great fun for hobbyist projects like Raspberry Pis. Phoenix LiveView is currently my favorite way of making full-stack web development cohesive and keeping the complexity as low as possible for it. I haven't run into any short compelling demos of getting these started together.
