Luis Lavena

Luis Lavena
Technical Director, AREA 17

Website | @luislavena

During the day, Luis Lavena is technical director at AREA 17, working on projects across the globe.

At night, he is the lead developer of RubyInstaller for Windows, a successor of once known One-Click Installer project that aims to reduce differences for Ruby users running Windows.

He also created other projects that helped Ruby developers in other platforms (not just Windows) and oversees other libraries so they are cross-platform friendly, looking for compliance beyond “works on my machine”

As his twitter account states, he can be defined as *nix developers worst nightmare…

He is also a RubyGems contributor and recently become Ruby-Core committer as one of the Ruby’s MinGW maintainers.
