Spike Ilacqua — Senior Software Engineer (Generalist)

The mononymous Spike is the sort of person who throws around words like "mononymous". Having derived the MVC pattern from first principles in Perl he discovered Rails and never looked back. And that was after he'd already started the world's first ISP looking like 'Morpheus' from The Matrix. See →

He's bemused that "what comes around, goes around" applied to software development and means that his knowledge of C, Lisp, and functional programming are as relevant now has they were when refrigerator size computers roamed the land. Not so much for Ada, that's never coming back.
