Author, The Pragmatic Programmer

Dave Thomas is a speaker, teacher, and writer, but mostly he’s a programmer. He cowrote The Pragmatic Programmer and The Manifesto for Agile Software Development. His book Programming Ruby introduced the Ruby language to the west, and Agile Web Development with Rails helped kickstart a web revolution. More recently Programming Elixir helped launch the Elixir language. He runs The Pragmatic Bookshelf and plays with cool stuff when he gets a chance.
