Open-Source Projects

I'm actively involved in the open source community. I contribute to various projects, and make many of my own tools available under the GPL. Some of my recent projects include:

  • ruby-dev
    • Automate builds of fully-functional Ruby on Rails VMs for quick-start development.
  • tempgit
    • Integrate Git with TDD: mechanize temporary Git repositories during testing.
