Hey, I'm Jared

/ I'm the founder of Super Good, a member of the Solidus core team, and not actually grumpy.
I've spent most of my career building digital commerce systems using Ruby on Rails. I've built high-volume payments gateways, the software to power fulfilment chains, rich eCommerce storefronts, and everything in between. Along the way I've helped software organizations scale, deliver faster and work more autonomously. In my spare time I surf, play hockey, and try to convince people to abolish the idea of time.
This website serves to chronicle what I've learned building large Ruby applications, running software teams, managing and consulting on products, and generally helping the people around me make software gooder.

Ruby/Rails

I've been writing Ruby and Rails long enough to know better. Along the way I've develop a bunch of really bad opinions and three or four really good ones. You'll just have to read all these posts and figure out which is which for yourself.

Software Development

Okay, I admit it. I'm one of those Agile people, but don't worry, I'm not here to sell you on Scrum (or even ever suggest you go near it.) I've been lucky enough to work primarily in the very cost-sensitive world of digital commerce, so my views here are born out of pragmatism.

Solidus

As a member of the Solidus core team, my opinions on Solidus things officially matter. You'll find more stuff from me about Solidus over the Super Good blog, but sometimes I like to talk about things a little more informally over here.

The Rest

Here's all the random travel blogs, posts about tech, failed New Year's resolutions, reading lists I didn't complete, and everything else that didn't fit in the other categories.
