About Our Speaker: David has been a professional web application developer for more than a decade, cutting his teeth on CGI with Perl, adopting Java in its infancy, jumping to Ruby shortly after Rails went 1.0, and currently investigating Node.js, SproutCore, and CouchDB. In his spare time, he tinkers with iOS development and creates Arduino projects with his three year old daughter. He is the lead organizer behind SecondConf, focusing on what's next for development and interaction design in the Apple ecosystem, and how to apply those technologies to improve the world.
After most downtown meetings we head over to Elephant & Castle (185 N. Wabash) for refreshments & fellowship. Join us for a few minutes if you have time.
