Shizuo Fujita (Watson) joins the RubyMotion team!
RubyMotion was released to the world just over 5 months ago and, in the time since, development and support has been a single-person effort. The success of RubyMotion so far has only been possible thanks to the wonderful community that has grown up around this young project.
HipByte, the company behind RubyMotion, is deliberately 100% bootstrapped without outside funding. Thanks to the support of RubyMotion users and the licenses you have purchased, we are ready to start growing the team!
Today we are glad to announce our first full-time addition to the team: Shizuo Fujita, aka Watson.
Those of you familiar with MacRuby most likely know Watson already. He joined in 2010 the MacRuby project and is now its most active contributor. He is familiar with the entire MacRuby stack (compiler, VM, runtime, library) and has been using RubyMotion since the very first beta builds! He is also involved in RubyMotionJP, an effort to promote RubyMotion in Japan.
Watson lives in Tokyo, Japan and will be helping with the RubyMotion maintenance as well as working on exciting new features.
Follow him on Twitter and GitHub and check out his website (in Japanese)!
