Day 0 - Introduce yourself!


Let’s use this topic as a place to introduce ourselves, rather than creating hundreds of individual topics for each person.

My intro:

  • I’m Ben.
  • I’m a co-founder of Tuple, a tool for remote pair programming.
  • I live in Boston.
  • I mainly write Ruby, but I’ve been enjoying dabbling with Elm and Clojure.
  • I host a podcast where I talk about software and business: The Art of Product.

Looking forward to hearing from all of you :slight_smile:

Hi I’m Jeff

  • I write Ruby on Rails, React and React Native apps.
  • I live and play in the mountains of Colorado.
  • As a freelancer, I often work alone and miss the code review process.

I’m excited about the journey!

I am Pete.

  • I mostly do freelancing work in Ruby/Rails
  • Dabble in iOS from time to time.
  • Trying my best to be a better UI Designer.
  • Want to build a project in Elixir some point in the near future.
  • Can be found on Twitter, LinkedIn (which I don’t update) and my website (which I intend to update very soon).

I want better code quality so I can spend less time in my text editor cleaning up bugs and trying to figure out what I had written 6 months ago and more time learning how to sell web products online for a profit. :slight_smile:

Can’t wait to meet you all!

Hello! I’m Dylan. I’ve spent most of my career writing .NET and Javascript. These days I’m working in Ruby, with side projects in .NET Core and Go. I’m online at and on Twitter. I’ve recently started working with a brand new team on a sizable Ruby/Rails codebase that none of us is familiar with, so I’m really looking forward to seeing how the CQC helps us get to know our monolith better :slight_smile:
