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

rspec, mostly because I grew up on it

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

ruby and node mostly

What topics might you be interested in?

changing culture in a company, hiring, continuous improvement, case studies of particular approaches, as many real-world scenarios/anecdotes a possible

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

I do a lot of thinking about how to optimize for developer productivity (minimizing distractions, meetings, managing workflow/communication, etc) and would be interested in being part of a panel discussion

What is your favorite version control system and why?

git because of its ease of branching (and because of github)


I went to most of the original CTO School sessions and loved them. I want to learn more.
