Programmer, Goldstar Events
I got into Rails pretty much from the get-go, not long after it was made publicly available for programmers to use. Since then I’ve worked on a dozen or so production Rails apps, and written countless toy and experimental apps. These days I help build the technology at goldstar.com.
My interests in Ruby/Rails are primarily in testing and high-level design. With Rails apps that have been running in production for 3, 4, or 5 years now, I think we need to shift our perspective a bit in order to keep up the pace of development that sets us apart from other languages and frameworks, so that we can continue to innovate and make money hand over fist.
Entitled “The BDD MoFo” by Dave Chelimsky, I’m somehow still a member of the RSpec core team :) Look for the (rough-cut e-version) book to drop soon!
I dropped out of college, which Dave Astels constantly ridicules me for, but it’s okay because I know he just envies my boyish good looks. I envy his wizard programmer beard.
