Nathan is a Web Application Developer with over 17 years of professional experience in the field. He is proficient in many languages, but currently focuses primarily on Ruby on Rails, or C# with a SQL backend.

Starting out in 2000 with front-end development (HTML, CSS, Javascript), Nathan quickly grew into more of a back-end developer with ASP Classic (VBScript, SQL). As the Web evolved, Nathan kept pace. When .NET came on the scene, Nathan was right there building applications and creating solutions for businesses, while still keeping up with front-end best practices, usability, standards compliance, and cross-browser compatibility.

In 2008, Nathan began his love affair with Ruby and Rails. Since 2000, Nathan was developing almost exclusively with Microsoft technologies, so he found Ruby and Rails to be an enormous breathe of fresh air. During this time, Nathan was very fortunate to experience first hand the birth of Hashrocket, and was able to learn from some of the best Rails and Ruby developers in the business. Since then, Nathan has continued to grow as a well versed developer. His passion for building the web continues to grow, and he looks forward to many more years doing what he loves.

When he's not busy building the web, you can find Nathan surfing with his wife and son, in the kitchen at Chez Arnold, or relaxing with a cold beverage in the abundant Florida sunshine.
