Tell us about yourself (professionally). What technical leadership experience do you have already?

Founded and personally grew Homepolish tech from $0 to $1MM in revenue. Now manage team of two devs.

What languages/frameworks do you program in (Java, .NET, PHP, Ruby, etc.)? What is your favorite, if different?

Ruby (Rails), Javascript (Angular). I like both for different reasons. Rails because it's more elegant, opinionated, and has more built-in. Javascript because it's asynchronous and works everywhere.

What topics might you be interested in?

Tech scaling challenges, security, recruiting, culture

Do you have any specific areas of expertise? Would you be willing to share it with the group?

PostGIS, Dual-sided marketplaces. Yes.

What is your favorite version control system and why?

Git because it's powerful, yet simple, and requires no oversight.
