Josh hepworthJosh HepworthRubyist and Co-founder of Friends of The Web.

I solve problems for people using technology. I'm a Partner at Friends of The Web, a web and mobile application services consultancy founded in Baltimore in 2011.

I write about Ruby and my tools in Articles. They're incredibly important to the efficiency and enjoyment of my work, so I'm inclined to share them. I also find Avdi's RubyTapas, the Ruby Weekly Newsletter, and objc.io to be excellent resources for expanding creative thinking around programming.

If you have questions about my work or coffee, reach out to me via email.
