who am i

Stuart Bates

Freelance Ruby developer

I'm a freelance developer with 8 years experience who now specialises in all things Ruby. I pride myself on combining beautiful code, business sense and great communication to provide value above just churning out lines of code.

Previously I was the co-founder and technical lead of digital agency Click where I was responsible for the technical delivery of well over 150 projects and for mentoring a number of junior Ruby developers.

things i've built

Here's some of the projects I've worked on recently - for now it's just a handful but I'll be adding a load more over the coming weeks. Each one links through to a technical case study which takes a closer looks at some of the project's more interesting code.


things i've written

I haven't had chance to write anything just yet... but I do plan to start writing about business, coding, digital agencies very soon! In the meantime if you're interested in techy stuff, I've written a number of technical case studies taking a closer look at some of the code behind my old client projects. You can find them in the portfolio section - I think this is my favourite.
