Jim Weirich

Jim Weirich first learned about computers when his college adviser suggested he take a computer science course: "It will be useful, and you might enjoy it." With those prophetic words, Jim has been developing now for over 25 years, working with everything from crunching rocket launch data on supercomputers to wiring up servos and LEDs on micro-controllers. Currently he loves working in Ruby and Rails as the Chief Scientist at New Context, but you can also find him strumming on his ukulele as time permits.

Steve Klabnik

I am first and foremost a human being. Secondarily, I enjoy persuing educating others on various aspects of software development, reading philosophy books, and radical politics. I primarily code in Ruby, though I've been programming my entire life, and therefore have a broad range of experience across many languages, paradigms, and archetectures. Past hobby projects have ranged from Rougelikes to operating systems (from scratch) to web applications to toy programming language runtimes. Most of my software development work is in teaching these days. I run classes with Jumpstart Lab, and make Hackety Hack. I've found a place between the sciences and the humanities. Critical Code Studies is really fascinating to me, and so I've been doing what I can to learn more about the human side of living. I read lots of philosophy and critical theory works. Right now, It's Empire by Hardt and Negri.
