Software Developer, Free Range
James has been developing using Ruby since 2001. He is one of the primary instigators of the London Ruby User Group, and has presented to Ruby and Rails developers in Vancouver, London, Copenhagen, Oslo, Santa Clara and Portland. His arms are very tired from all that flying.
Most recently, he organised a new kind of conference – Ruby Manor – demonstrating the potential and passion within the UK Ruby community.
He’s been an active member of the Rails community since its inception, and is the developer behind the Engines plugin. He’s also author of the Rails Plugins book. And, lest we forget, the ‘acts_as_hasselhoff’ plugin.
He pretends not to have a blog at interblah.net.
