I'm Adam Hawkins

I'm a freelance web developer working primarily in the Ruby ecosystem. I write a lot of open source code you can find on github speak as at as many meetups and conferences as I can. I'd like to learn Haskell/Clojure/Erlang to compliment Ruby's object-orientated side. While I'm not programming hopefully I'm in a new country with some banging trance pumpin' through my headphones.

I'm the author of the most popular and indepth resources on caching in rails applications. I'm writing a comprehensive book on application performance. I offer performance consultations for who need to faster apps. and on site services for people who work better in person. I enjoy travelling and speaking at conferences and local events. Hopefully you'll find me on the road in 2014 talking about these important topics.
