The Modern Developer

Phil Oxrud

My name is Phil Oxrud, I am a "full stack" web dev currently residing in Toronto, Canada. I am a strong believer in always using the best tool for the job. In recent years I have been developing in Ruby on Rails and am now exploring the world of NodeJS and AngularJS. I enjoy both backend and frontend development.

Here are some of my recent projects:
