Heavily. I had the good fortune to be introduced to software engineering as a genuine vocation, something passionate and based on craft at a ruby shop, and it is still my first stop when trying to figure out a new problem.
Family of rails apps and mobile clients for a consumer market, revenue is ad revenue, some content is user generated. Stack 1.9.3/Rails3/JQuery/Backbone/Varnish/GroundworkCSS/db tech as appropriate (some mongo, some mysql2, some other silliness)
I'm relatively new to things, coming from a testing background, so TDD has a certain appeal for me. Aside from TDD best practices (and how to do it at all with mobile/dynamic content), I'm curious about abstract concepts like state machines and database normalization as they tend to (or should) be in ruby.
