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

I run a team of around 14 developers, more than half remotely.

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

Mainly ruby / rails.

What topics might you be interested in?

Hiring, culture, professional development (amongst the team), technology / architecture choices.

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

I'd be happy to share any of my experiences at Mint, be it growing the team, managing members remotely or anything else.

What is your favorite version control system and why?

Git, like most people github makes this the most useful for me, although I did switch from svn before github came along, mainly (if I remember correctly), for the better branching flow.

Introduction

I've been programming for over 10 years and am now the CTO at a product development studio based in London and New York.
