Joshua moore

Joshua Moore grew up on a farm in Pennsylvania, USA. On the farm he learned that hard work is not easy and that he did not like to get dirty. So he started down the path of computer programming (less dirt, but still hard work). He liked Java and worked mostly with desktop application development until about a year ago, when he decided he could not ignore web development any longer (he ignored it before because he did not want to fight different browsers to get his applications to work right). But, different browser rendering or not, here he is using Ruby on Rails, mostly JRuby on Rails, and loving it. He chose Rails because it was simple, powerful, and no configuration needed.
