JUnit. I guess I'm a traditionalist and never picked up anything newer ;-)
Currently using Drupal CMS, which is all PHP. In the past I worked mostly in Java with some detours in C++, Python and various other languages.
Anything tech really. I always like to hear about ways to make things easier, more reliable and faster.
I would say my most valuable expertise is in balancing the various drivers that contribute and sometimes hinder implementation. I have worked with many very bright technology experts and found that the "non-compromising" type who insists that there is only one way (the best) to implement usually has a hard time bringing solutions to market. A good technologist needs to be able to live within a balance of power created by the various elements that have a need for the technology to begin with.
GIT. I stayed with Subversion for as long as I could resisting change. When I adopted GIT, I realized that I could have saved myself tons of time in the past. We are now running all our deployment into dev, test, staging and production right from our master GIT repository.
I have worked as the technology lead in a number of startups in the network management, network security and photography industries. I'm currently running the operations at PrintedArt, an online photography collection (http://www.printe...).
