Trying to make the world better with code. And build chatbots.
If you would like to know more about what I do, you’re in the right spot. This site isn’t for anyone in particular.
Maybe you’ve seen one of my talks or are researching me for a job.
Or maybe you’re another Aaron Cruz and you’re looking for who got the sweet domain name.
Welcome to my website.
My work is spread out between a few different projects. Here are the main ones I’m working on currently. For more information about a particular project, follow the link to the project’s site.
Wirsing is a small software consultancy dedicated to working on projects that bring positive change to the world. We have organized food waste and refugee help hackathons and we are currently working with the EU to reduce food waste across Central Europe
I have been building chatbots for side projects and clients. You can play around with a few below.
Burgers and Beer Bot
If you are down for some bugers or some beer, talk to this bot. I built it with the Elixir programming language as an experiement in learning about bots and Elixir. If you want to read the horrendous source code, view it on github here.
Burpee Trainer Bot (coming soon)
Burpees are the worst. But they get you super fit if you do enough of them. This chatbot helps you in progressions to full burpees with the goal of you doing 30,000 burpees in a year. Try at your own risk 😉
I speak at conferences and meetups around the world about topics like:
- Software Design
- Minimum Viable Product Inception and Creation
This Bot Will Pump You Up!
I challenged myself to get fit with fitness chatbots I was building. Try not to cry when you see what happened next.

Evolution Of A Burger Bot
I built a Burgers and Beer chatbot using the Elixir programming language. This talk is a bit about the process but mostly about chatbot design.

Ruby is just a tool and this talk is a very brief introduction to some other tools a Rubyist could add to their toolbox: Golang, Elixir and the Crystal Programming Language.

TJ Holowaychuk Is A Hivemind
There are rumors swirling around that perhaps TJ, a hero in the node.js community, is not what he claims to be… a real person! We get to the bottom of it in this (controversal by the look of the votes) talk.
