About RSpec Plain Text Stories

About Evan

Evan Light is a professional software developer of 12 years who works for reQall. The majority of his career were woefully misspent working in Java. His more redeeming attributes include being married to a wonderful wife, raising three cats (his true masters), and having several years of C and a few of Ruby under his belt. He only developed the itch to code in his spare time upon discovering Ruby. Now, entirely too much of his life (and his wardrobe) contains Ruby.
