Hey there! My name's Bobby Steinbach and I'm a software developer currently working out of NYC where I'm hacking as a Python/Django backend developer and Android lead developer at Rukkus.
Although I absolutely love coding and couldn't imagine doing anything else as a career, sometimes I definitely need a break from the glow of a computer monitor. At these times, I enjoy Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, woodworking, and - hackneyed for a programmer, I know - playing videogames.
My work thus far at Rukkus has revolved heavily around a few things:
While working at TheShelf, I was able to both sharpen my Python/Django chops and gain invaluable exposure to the business side of working in an early-stage startup. My first task upon arrival was to refactor the website entirely. Challenging? Yes. Daunting? Yes. But in the end, very positive because I was able to fully understand the code base once finished. Subsequent projects included building out a dynamic image collage, re-wiring key parts of the site to use Backbone, and optimizing a feed containing millions of items.
