Aaron Hill

I’m a web developer who’s been getting paid to do it for over a decade, though I got my start back in the 90s. The oldest bit of Internet I own is a sheet-feed dot-matrix printout of the script for “Monty Python & the Holy Grail” which I printed off from Gopher (the 2400 bps connection choked halfway through, around Scene 24 🙁 ). I work as Ruby on Rails developer, after spending about a decade in Higher Ed WebDev. I also volunteer for RubyForGood as a Project Team Lead. I did an 18-month research project about Internet Memes that became a conference presentation at PSU Elements ’16 (it was not recorded, but I talked about it on HigherEdLive). I also like to bake. If I had to pick only one framework to work in it would be Ruby on Rails.
