Hi, I founded Phusion and I'm the author of the Passenger application server, which helps deploying and supercharging apps. Based on Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and founded in 2008, we're Bootstrapped, Profitable and Proud: a number of years ago we hit 1 million USD annual recurring revenue. Passenger is an open core product (open source code, paid add-ons) with 650 000+ sites world-wide using it.
I love making developer tooling and bridging Dev and Ops. I'm a long-time open source enthusiast, having contributed to various projects since the early 2000s, such as Nginx, Ruby, Rails, GNOME, and more. Recently I identified why Ruby bloats memory and was able to reduce memory usage by as much as 70%.
Since having founded Phusion, I've gained a lot of experience not only as a developer, but also as a CTO and as a consultant.
I love helping others, as I regularly mentor people. Ask me anything!
