Ruby Wizard

Peter loves little more than a deep discussion of best coding practices. Since 2005 he has authored, maintained and contributed to many dozens of open source projects, primarily in ruby, javascript and bash. Dedicated to moving science forward and improving the condition of life by automation and systemization. Favorite things include: data analysis, task automation, testing, style guides, API design, benchmarking, and refactoring. Co-founder and CTO of a startup, Peter saw it through to successful acquisition by a competitor. His brain is a computer with a surprisingly nimble human interface.
