About me:

Brandon Hilkert

My name is Brandon Hilkert and I've been feverishly building Ruby applications since 2009. I helped build Meeteor, a social application that helped translate the networking process online and have since been building the best CRM on the internet.

I first got started with open source Ruby gems by contributing to Sidekiq. Since then I've written about contributing to Open Source software and made a few fairly popular Ruby gems myself.

When I attempted to write my first gem, I was pretty confused about the standards and conventions necessary to integrate with existing Ruby tooling. So I wrote this course to in attempts to bridge that gap. I hope you find it useful.

Update: Due to the overwhelming interest in the email course, I've continued to write a book on the same subject. The book covers additional topics like Rails integration and common configuration patterns.
