👋 Hi! I’m John Hawthorn
I’m a 💎 Ruby committer, on the 🚋 Rails core team, and on the Ruby Architecture team at GitHub. I most like working on performance, hopefully I’ve made your code run faster too 🤗

discard provides a simple soft-delete pattern for ActiveRecord.
meh is a fast image viewer for X11 using raw XLib.
I dabble in electronics ⚡:
⌨️ I designed a USB controller to modernize Model M keyboards.
