Day Job: Fellow at Code for America
Open Source contribution: lots of gems: rails_admin, omniauth, multi_xml, multi_json, faraday, twitter, simple_oauth, oauth2, octokit, and many more.
Tell me about your experience with Ruby/Rails: I started using Rails in 2006, shortly after version 1 was released. I then switched to primarily using Merb in 2008 and released my first Open Source project on GitHub: MerbAdmin. I then switched back after Rails 3 was released and oversaw the porting of MerbAdmin to Rails 3 as a Ruby Summer of Code mentor.
How do you use GitHub: GitHub is my life.
Favorite luchador(es): I must confess, I know almost nothing about lucha libre.

# This script is an adaptation from http://www.sqlite.org/cvstrac/wiki?p=ConverterTools
# It expects stdin input from mysqldump with the following params:
# mysqldump --skip-extended-insert --add-drop-table --compatible=ansi --skip-add-locks --skip-comments --skip-disable-keys --skip-set-charset
# Note: Don't use --skip-quote-names as this script expects quoted names
#
# Note: This script imports boolean values as they are stored in Mysql, e.g., as the integers 0 and 1.
# As a result, boolean fields need to be further normalized after this transform step
# such that false field values are 'f' and true field values are 't', which is
