Tim Riley

Canberra, Australia

👋🏼 Hi! I'm Tim. I love Ruby. I've worked with Ruby for nearly 20 years, and even after all this time, it still brings me joy!

My mission in open source is to ensure the joy of Ruby extends to the experience of writing real, maintainable applications, for teams of all sizes.

For me, this comes from following a hybrid FP/OOP approach to writing Ruby, and for the last 6+ years, I’ve been helping to build tools to make this easy for application developers.

I’m a co-founder and core team member of the dry-rb project, and a core team member of the rom-rb and Hanami projects.

Right now, I’m heavily involved in the effort to build Hanami 2.0, which represents a new model for Ruby open source collaboration, and will provide a true framework of the future for Ruby application developers.

I do the majority of my open source work as my “second job,” on nights and weekends. Your kind support will help sustain me in all of these efforts.

Thank you! 🙏🏼

11 sponsors are funding timriley’s work.


Along with my monthly OSS updates, I’ll commit to an additional blog post each month on Ruby, OSS development, and maintainable software architecture.
