Hi, my name is OKURA Masafumi, a software developer based in Tokyo, Japan, focusing on Ruby/Rails.
What I've beed working on recently
- I've beening developing a JSON Serializer for Ruby named
Albafor several months now. It provides a few DSL to organize JSON well and is the fastest among the alternatives.
- I'm also organizing a large tech conference about Ruby on Rails called
Kaigi on Rails. I'm the founder and chief organizer of the event. It starts this year (2020) and this time is the remote and domestic event for Japanese developers, but I'd like to make it an international one next year!
- I started to organize a few Ruby meetups recently. One is
Grow.rband another is
Grow.rbis a local meetup in Tokyo focusing on Ruby techniques but due to COVID-19 it's online from this spring.
Entaku.rbis an online meetup from the beginning and is fosuing on discussions. I'm also a co-organizer of a few Ruby communities in Tokyo.
- I traslated a book, Mastering Vim into Japanese.
What I'm going to do in the future
- I love teaching. I've been a coach in Rails Girls for more than 10 times and now I'm going to have coaching sessions for more advanced developers. Visit the session page if you'd like to get one-to-one session to know more about Ruby and Rails.
- I'd like to publish a book of my own. It'll be a book about Ruby on Rails and the basic of web technologies.
- I think I need to learn a new programming language, but have not decided which one yet. Maybe Rust?
