I have been a developer basically all my life. Started early in high school with programming games on my calculator, studied computer science and after graduated made my career as a developer.
I worked for small startups and large coorperations. I always loved helping out my colleagues and figuring out complex problems. Whenever a nasty bug was resolved it put a smile to my face.
I use Ruby on Rails on a daily basis and know my way around. On the side I have been coaching this wonderful technologies to newcomers. It's alwqys great to see technology through the eyes of someone else.
