I have been a software developer since 1997. I co-founded a startup called ShareAPhoto which was eventually acquired by HP. I am the author of the Rails Pocket Reference (O’Reilly 2008) and have been an active member of the open source developer community since. I have been working in the open source sustainability field for nearly a year. I founded Code Sponsor last year to help support open source projects. This year, we re-branded the company as CodeFund and focus on helping developers find funding through ethical advertising.
