Mark is a former-sysadmin-turned-developer with a lifelong interest in tech, science and maths. He started his Ruby journey in 2008 with Rails. These days, he uses Ruby and a handful of other languages - but Ruby is his staple language, because of both the language itself and the community around it. He is also keen to help the tech industry be a better and more inclusive place, particularly for people with disabilities.

Outside of tech, he watches more TV than is probably healthy, manages to be a halfway-decent home cook, and is keen to do more travelling.

Also Perth Ruby Meetup co-organizer.

General Member

Late last millenium Sharon completed a computer degree because her mum, in the mid-80s, said, “There is a future in computers.” Mum may have been right but Sharon went for a wander through academia and the arts ending up as a Film Projectionist. When Sharon was replaced by a digital projector, she took irony firmly in hand and decided, in June 2016, to become a Developer.
