Episode Summary

In this episode of My Ruby Story, Charles hosts Luca Guidi, Senior Software Developer at DNSimple and creator of Hanami ( previously Lotus framework) from Italy.

Listen to Luca on the podcast Ruby Rogues on this episode and this episode.

Luca grew up playing video games and took his first programming class when he was 12. His dream was to become a programmer. After studying Information Technology, Luca started working as a programmer and Ruby felt the most natural to him. He found that Rails was a great to start off applications with but not necessarily maintain with. So he created Ruby web framework Lotus which he renamed as  Hanami after IBM created software named Lotus as well. Luca is currently working on Hanami preparing for a 2.0 alpha release, he will also be a speaker at the RubyDay2019 conference that will be held in Verona in April.
