Big Ruby Presentation Round-up
Last week the OrgSync development team was out en masse at Big Ruby Conf in our own backyard of Dallas, TX. We had a great time and listened to so many fantastic talks that it’s hard to keep track of them all. To help with this problem I decided to put together a complete list of talks replete with links to slide decks. Enjoy!

Cameron Desautels is a polyglot developer originally from Colorado Springs, CO. He holds a masters degree in Computer Science from The University of Texas at Dallas, in OrgSync's own backyard. He joined OrgSync in April of 2012 after a three year foray into mobile app development. Cameron firmly believes that being a good developer implies being a good designer—that developers must have an in-depth understanding of the way non-technical users think and interact with products and should design to align with user intuitions. In his free time he enjoys drinking tea, coding in Lisp, and studying Japanese.
