A bit about Nick.
Nick loves working on open-source frameworks, and that's what he does almost every day. He also loves people, surfing, beer, skateboarding and loud music.
Make sure to hug him should you ever meet him in person.
And have you read his book https://leanpub.com/trailblazer yet? You absolutely should!
Nick is a Trailblazer creator and it gives developers structure and architectural guidance and finally answers the question of "Where do I put this kind of code?" in Rails.
“To a better code structure with more abstraction layers. Trailblazer introduces desperately needed new objects into web architectures like Rails. Form objects, operations, policies, view models, and more, help engineering teams to step-wise introduce the Trailblazer architecture into messy Rails apps.”
