The Hilkert Family

Hi. I’m Brandon. I’m a Father, Husband, Developer, and Bootstrapper.

I’ve been making software for about 15 years now - the majority using Ruby.

At some point in there I got involved with startups and building products. While I don’t have a list of impressive acquisitions to share, I love it and can’t imagine myself doing anything else.

My goal is to inspire you to improve your products and applications.

I have a newsletter, FREE email course and book about building Ruby gems. I tend to write most about Ruby and Rails development, with the occasional post about online marketing and documenting my experiences building products - I hope it inspires you.

I’d love to chat about what you’re working on. Feel free to email me or find me on Twitter.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you stick around…
