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

python's builtin unit test plus nose. I like nose's plugin system and its test discovery especially with the attributes plugin so that we can run exactly the tests we want for a given purpose.

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

Mostly Python/Django these days, plus usual web technologies.

What topics might you be interested in?

Topics on managing scale of both systems and teams.

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

I do - and I would. Managing teams, high traffic web sites, agile dev processes, AWS and push-button deployments, testing, and others.

What is your favorite version control system and why?

They're all too complicated for mortals, but I prefer hg over git, then git over svn. Git's advantage over standard hg is its ability to cherry pick - both a blessing and a curse! CHanging git history though just seems wrong.


I was at a Django Meetup last night and someone mentioned that CTO School was great.

What Rob G. is saying about this Meetup Group

This was my first time attending this meetup. I appreciated the talks. I'll likely attend more and join the group afterwards for drinks.
