Director, Grasshopper Labs
Michael Buffington is the co-founder of Grockit Inc, a company building a massive multiplayer online learning game using Rails and agile development practices.
Michael also an author and speaks frequently about technology. He’s worked on several well known Rails projects including Stikkit, MeasureMap, and the once famous but now poorly neglated Rails based game llor.nu.
He works remotely from his home office in Portland Oregon with Grockit teammates in San Francisco, Rochester New York, Los Angeles, and Fort Lauderdale. When not starting interesting projects, he can be found enjoying time with his wife and two painfully brilliant children, skateboarding the glorious concrete Oregon skateparks, illustrating, and saying embarrasing things about himself on his personal site (http://michaelbuffington.com)
