Today we’d like to announce the newest addition to the 37signals team: Jamis Buck. Jamis lives in Provo, UT with his wife and two kids. He’s been doing some contract work for us, but it was finally time to make him part of the family. Besides being a rock star programmer, and a skilled communicator, he’s an incredibly nice and decent guy (we met him out in Seattle at the Building of Basecamp workshop).
Jamis has been programming heavy-use applications in C and Java for years, but his real passion is writing in Ruby. And seeing that Basecamp, Ta-da, and our other products in development are Ruby-based, it’s a perfect fit for everyone. We get to work with an extraordinary programmer, Jamis gets to work with a language and framework he’s passionate about, and his kids get to have daddy around during the day. All of the above makes us happy.
So, welcome aboard Jamis. Everyone say hi!
