Hello!

My name is Pratik Naik and this is my blog. I'm an Indian expat, living in Cambridge, UK.

I work for 37signals as a senior Ruby on Rails programmer. We build useful softwares for humans.

     

Currently, I am a member of the Ruby on Rails core team. My other open source involvements include Cramp - an asynchronous ruby web framework and Tolk - a rails engine for managing i18n translations. Most of my open source work can be found at github.

I also manage Planet Ruby on Rails.

You can stalk me on twitter @lifo or last.fm.
