I’m a software developer and writer living in Scottsdale, Arizona. My primary development language is Ruby.
I run Ruby-doc.org, the main documentation site for the Ruby language. I also created RubyStuff.com, where you can find a nice range of Ruby-themed paraphernalia. You can never have too many Ruby T-shirts.
I was Editor-in-Chief for Ruby Code & Style for about a year.
I’ve written a number of technical articles for publications such as Dr. Dobbs and Linux Journal, and co-authored the book Professional VB 6 & XML, and wrote most of the Web development section in Hal Fulton’s The Ruby Way, 2nd ed .
I’ve spoken at numerous Ruby conferences; some of these are available as video on the Confreaks site.
I’m President of Neurogami, a Ruby/JRuby application development company in Scottsdale, AZ. Neurogami develops JotBot, a sleek desktop time-tracking tool written in JRuby using the Monkeybars library.
My personal blog is JamesBritt.com
You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I also hang out on the IRC channels #phx.rb, #rbp, #jruby, #ruby-pro, and #ruby-lang, on freenode
My favorite color is plaid, and I was born and raised on an island in North America.
