Ryan Smith
Engineer, Heroku

Website | @ryandotsmith

My educational background consists of Computer Science and Mathematics. I have contributed to projects like: ActiveMerchant, Gemcutter and others. These days I am crafting code on the API Team at Heroku. Each day I am solving problems using parallel algorithms and cloud infrastructure. I believe this to be a fundamental concept in modern web development and thus I have a passion for teaching other developers how to best apply this concept.
