Gautam Rege

Gautam Rege has been working in Ruby since 2007 and has been experimenting a lot with MongoDB. He believes Ruby is indeed the language of the next generation – very human-readable, flexible and extremely enjoyable. MongoDB is the new age NoSQL forerunner. It has rightly started to gain ‘humongous’ patronage. Gautam works a lot in Rails and at Josh Software Private Limited, the company he co-founded, working exclusively in Ruby and Ruby-related technologies. He is well versed with Rhodes (the Ruby mobile framework), Merb, Sinatra and occasionally also experiments with JS frameworks like Sproutcore, and Backbone.js
