Marc-André Lafortune is a freelance developper has been hacking code
for a couple of decades now and has since grown fond of refactoring,
fixing things and reducing technical debt – ideally all at once.
He loves coding in Ruby and can't resist telling others how to do it properly – at conferences around the world or on the net on github or StackOverflow. This incontrollable desire to do things right led him into all sorts of trouble, including becoming a CRuby committer in 2009 as well as contributing to dozens of open source projects.
He has published a couple of projects, with erratic popularity ranging from his Ruby `backports` library with millions of downloads to `vivified`, a clever way of extending jQuery with CoffeeScript with 2 measly stars.
