My name is Georges Duplessy, and this is my blog.
Who am I?
I’m a computer science college student with interests that lay in computer, programming, business and entrepreneurship. I'm a part time freelancer, and a ruby consultant when the project is interesting enough. I love to play table tennis and work with awesome people. I currently live in Boca Raton, FL and am open for work both remote and local, let me know!
Like any artist who loves his trade I do my best to keep my skills up to date, but the main tools I use to create and perfect my pieces are:
- Ruby: A dynamic, open source programming language with a focus on simplicity and productivity.
- Ruby on Rails 3: Open-source web framework that's optimized for programmer happiness and sustainable productivity.
- GIT: free and open source, distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency.
- HAML: a lightweight markup language that is used to describe the XHTML of any web document without the use of traditional inline coding.
- CSS: a style sheet language used to describe the presentation semantics (the look and formatting) of a document written in a markup language.
- MySQL: the most popular open-source database.
- sqlite3: a lightweight open-source database.
