Meet Emily Stolfo

Could you introduce yourself in a few lines?

Salut ! I'm Emily and I work on the Ruby driver to MongoDB. I also teach Rails at Columbia University as an adjunct faculty. You can otherwise find me running, going to concerts, or on a plane to a place I've never been before.

You're giving a talk at Rulu this year. What will you talk about?

That wrap music: writing a Ruby API to wrap another API.

Three properties:

  • You code with: Sublime
  • You test with: RSpec, TestUnit
  • If Ruby was forbidden, you would code in: C

What Lyonnaise specialty will you give a try this year?

Cervelle des Canuts

What are you working on these days?

I'm splitting my time between maintaining the current Ruby driver (1.x) and working with my team to write a new one (2.0)

What are the talks, books, libraries or commands you think more people should be aware of - because, well, they make your life so much better!

Anything to add before we wrap this up?

I look forward to catching up with some rubyists I had the pleasure of meeting at dotrb last year and to meeting some new rubyists. In particular, if you're a mongo ruby driver user, let me know, I'd love to chat!

Ruby Lugdunum (aka RuLu) is a two-day conference dedicated to exploring the Ruby language and basking in warmth of the amazing Ruby community.

RuLu 2014 takes place in Lyon, France on June 19th and 20th. Have a look at the talks, read the blog and get your ticket!
