Somewhere I’m consistently challenged and growing as a developer/person. Somewhere with great people, exciting projects (whether it be technologically or conceptually). Somewhere that cares about the community and gives back. Flexibility and lifestyle are important as well.
I like pretty code, good beer, learning, cats, and music. In my spare time I read, cycle, and make (primarily electronic) music. Generic much?
Working with companies and individuals in various capacities. Mentoring, software development, etc. Ruby and Clojure.
Working closely with clients: requirement gathering via story carding, daily standup calls, Really ‘owning’ a project, other than financially, etc. ‘Agile’, Merciless Refactoring, BDD/TDD via Rspec and Cucumber, preferring a heavier integration-test based approach now, Pair programming (always), and all that other good stuff. Develop professional software, contribute to OSS projects, etc!
Maintenance and Debugging of legacy code, primarily on the LessAccounting and LessProjects applications. Implementation of new features. Client work such as GoPublic Application Behavior testing via Shoulda and Test::Unit
Full life-cycle application development of several projects, including: The Mark News, Quantology Development of a Facebook application, using their API and FBML (Facebook Markup Language) as well as Ruby/Rails and Sinatra for Quantology, a numerology application
Hobbyist Languages (ie: haven’t done much/anything “real” in them): Haskell, Obj-C, Io
Testing frameworks: Rspec, Cucumber, Capybara, Shoulda
Templating: HAML preferred, ERB and HTML if necessitated
MongoDB/Mongoid: (a bit rusty ATM, but I spent a decent amount of time here, and have contributed a few patches to Mongoid)
Editors: Vim, but I don’t hate the emacs lot. And am okay with TextMate people as well :p (Usually this isn’t that important, but can matter when pairing).
Libraries: I’d rather not name every library I’ve touched, if you’re curious about anything specific, feel free to ask, but in Ruby the toolset has been evolving quite a bit :)
Pretty good with the codes and the peoples, perhaps likable as well.
