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

RSpec. Elegant syntax and powerful to reduce duplication in your tests.

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

NodeJS, Ruby, Java, Hadoop, Rails, C, Objective-C

What topics might you be interested in?

Recruiting, new techniques, technologies, etc.

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

Big data

What is your favorite version control system and why?

Git. Used SVN & CVS prior. Git gives me fast branching, easier merging & offline version control.


I'm one of the organizers of the NodeJS & Ruby meet ups. I was previously the Principal Architect at Magnetic & now head up technology at LocalResponse.
