Tim Mecklem

Tim works at Gaslight in Cincinnati, OH building software solutions on Ruby and Elixir and is a member of the nerves-project.org Core team. He credits his previous experience in building iOS apps for changing the entire way he thinks about development. Those tiny screens gave Tim an appreciation for simplifying workflows that he applies to every application, and it nudged him toward Elixir and the Nerves Project.
