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

rspec. I guess it's what i'm most comfortable using. I like the idea of cucumber but found managing cucumber test suite on large projects to be a challenge - it's hard to refactor all those step definitions. Not as good at jasmine as I'd like to be.

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

these days mostly ruby + javascript. been getting really into ember.js

What topics might you be interested in?

curious if other CTOs could share some experiences in the various tech incubators

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

sure. i could speak about something technical, raising capital or building a lean startup.

What is your favorite version control system and why?

git. It's so much more elegant a solution than svn/cvs hard to explain. Plus github has added this whole social layer that's done a lot for the community. Maybe mercurial is worth looking into as well but I've never tried.
