CTO, Protose Inc.
Since discovering Rails just over a year ago, James has become a prolific contributor to its open source ecosystem. He is the author of several well-used plug-ins and gems, and a contributor to countless others, including the framework itself.
James is the founder of GiraffeSoft, a boutique rails consultancy, based in Montreal, Qc. Known for their ability to turn projects around quickly, without sacrificing maintainability, GiraffeSoft has quickly become the go-to shop for ruby and rails development in Montreal. Case in point, the 2008 Rails Rumble, in which the GiraffeSoft team designed, built, and deployed a web application in just 48 hours. They won the “most useful” prize.
