Worked in LA for the video game company THQ, in Seattle for Microsoft Game Studios, and NY for McKinsey, and am now at Pivotal embracing the ruby revolution.
Pair Programming TDD in Ruby on Rails, after having been a Silverlight/WPF/C++ developer. Experience with strongly typed languages and dynamic languages, pure SQL and ORM technology like Linq2Entities and Rails ActiveRecord, give me a breadth of knowledge that I hope will be valuable when evaluating current and future technology for a particular problem.
rspec, capybara, and selenium combination: has a fantastic balance of programmer efficiency and readability while still being extremely ideal for TDD and pair programming.
git is nothing short of revolutionary in the VCS domain. Sure, it might not have been the first to introduce the concept of a distributed version control system, but it certainly made it popular, and it is now a fundamental tool when deploying to the cloud. The distributed nature of it has allowed grass roots innovation in the open source community to take off, with github at the forefront.
Hi Dimitri, Im on a similar quest:)
