Hi there!

I'm Michael.

I strongly believe in creating sustainable value by teaching and helping people.

For the last decade I have been working fulltime as Linux sysadmin but my entrepreneural heart has always been beating for web development, especially with Rails.

Given my background, I know a thing or two about provisioning servers, deploying Rails applications and managing production environments - subjects that are often neglected in the community, yet are of vital importance for any business.

While deep into bootstrapping my own business I want to help you gaining confidence and expertise in deploying your Rails applications, keeping them running in the wild and shed some light on server management from a Rails developer's point of view.

For this purpose, I maintain a weekly newsletter (to which you can subscribe here) and publish articles containing actionable advice for freelancers, small businesses and everyone who is interested.

I would love hearing from you so if you want to contact me, please shoot me an email anytime or connect via Twitter, Facebook or Github.
