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

rspec. it's the simplest.

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

Most of them. But I prefer Python, specifically Pylons/Pyramid.

What topics might you be interested in?

i focus more and more on the business and organizational stuff these days. i still code a lot, but i'm more about the business value than the lines of code.

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

I can't think of anything off the top of my head.

What is your favorite version control system and why?

depends on the project / team. i use git/github and svn/private-repos on a daily basis. i like mercurial, but I don't like bitbucket. github won, and its just easier to consolidate everything there.
