Hi, I’m Ben Oakes and this is my geek blog.

Proudly Creating Software in Iowa's Creative Corridor

Currently, I’m a Ruby/JavaScript Developer working remotely from Iowa City, IA. I also organize TechCorridor.io, especially the Ruby meetup. I previously organized NewHaven.rb which morphed into NewHaven.io.

I also consider myself a sustainability enthusiast. If you’d like to talk about solar power, electric vehicles, waste reduction (including recycling), vegetarianism, or vegetable gardening, please get in touch!
