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

I love the way I can express tests as customer requirements in RSpec.

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

Personally, I love Ruby (and Rails) and Perl (and Moose and Catalyst). Thumbtack uses these, as well as Java, Python/Django, .Net, Drupal and others; we're polyglots

What topics might you be interested in?

transitioning from management to leadership, scaling teams and technologies

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

Kanban, Managing offshore teams

What is your favorite version control system and why?

I love cheap and frequent branching with git.
