Welcome to the CQC forum!

  • I’m Dorothy.
  • I’m working at Tuple with Ben .
  • I’ll be helping running this course
  • I work in Ruby and JavaScript

Looking forward to hearing from all of you :slight_smile:


Hi! I’m Ben, and I created this challenge you’ve decided to take on :slight_smile:

My day-job is being the CEO and co-founder of Tuple, a remote pair programming app. (Currently macOS-only, but coming to Linux soon).

I’m excited to be running a third cohort of the CQC. A few thousand people have gone through the challenge at this point, and I love hearing from folks having success cleaning up their codebases.

Welcome, everyone!


Hi Everyone,

I’m Andy, I work on about 100 different small applications for a non-profit. I really enjoyed the CQC last year. There is always room for improvement, and taking the time to look around with a perspective other than trying to solve the immediate problem can be so fruitful.

Thank you Ben & Dorthy for running this. I’m looking forward to it.



:wave: Hi all, I’m Colin!

I am a software consultant and indie hacker. In addition to selling my time for dollars to whoever will pay me to write Ruby, I also build several products along with a partner under the umbrella of our holding company, Nimble Industries, including:

  • StatusGator, a status page aggregator and monitoring service
  • VimTricks, an email newsletter publishing tips and tricks about Vim

Excited to slay some tech debt with everyone.


Hi! My name is Stephane Liu. I am a product manager and software lead for a team of dev for a government agency.

We have been developing solutions in Ruby on Rails since 2006 and we continue to lean into automations and playbooks to produce more robust and maintainable code.

I am happy to be a part of this cohort to learn from other dev’s experiences. Thanks @ben for creating this forum and @dorothy for guiding us through this!

Hi, I’m Daniel.

It’s good to meet you all. The CQC will be a good thing to do to really start the year :smiley:

I’m currently working on a three year old Rails + React project. Since the 2018 version of CQC helped me to improve the codebase of another project I decided to take the challenge again to improve this one as well.


Hello everyone :wave:

My name is Rohan, I’m a developer at Gobble and this is my first year taking part in CQC! I currently write in Ruby but am a Typescript fanboy at heart. I’m very excited to follow along and improve the codebase both at work and for my own personal project - Pantry.

Cheers! :beer:

Happy to be a part of this challenge

  • I’m Kori. Follow me on twitter. It’s free, why not?
  • I’m working at part time at JOGL (Just One Giant Lab) and will be doing this challenge with a coworker.
  • JOGL is open source! So y’all can call us on it if you don’t see the backend pull requests!
  • I do mostly Ruby. In a previous dev life I did frontend too, but our frontend wizards are so wizardy that I daren’t dabble further, lest I perturb their wizardry.

Hi, I’m Julian!

I’m a freelance RoR developer and StimulusReflex core team member. I’m not sure what codebase I will use as the ground truth for this challenge, there are so many to choose from :see_no_evil:

Take care everyone!
