1. Jakob is an “interface guy”, who enjoys closely examining how everything interacts within the fascinating world of web applications and analyzing how these interfaces can be improved. This involves for example external interactions between users and web applications just as much as internal interactions between designers and developers.

    Since the beginning of this century he has been working in web development and particularly enjoyed discovering the fields of open source and usability. He earned a Masters in Human-Computer Interaction from the University of Michigan (USA) in 2009 and has been working as a frontend web developer for Railslove in Cologne for the last years. In that time he also became a very active and involved member of the German and international Ruby & Rails community.

  3. Andrew is a frontend focused developer. He's been using Rails for 5 years and regularly releases open source code.

    He has a passion for shipping software fast, using real user metrics to inform development decisions and recently dived head first into A/B Testing.

    A/B Testing everything with Split
    Just because the tests past doesn't mean that your users will actually like the change, you can test your features in front of real users using A/B testing. A/B testing is becoming an important tool on the web to test out new features on a subset of your users to find out if they fulfil their purpose and make your decisions based on data not opinions. Split is a rack based A/B testing framework, it works with Rails, Sinatra and any other rack based web framework. Find out why we needed another framework and how to use in Rails, Sinatra and Radiant and the best practises of A/B testing.
