Board of Directors

President
Hello! I’m am a Software Developer at CoverMyMeds. I love learning and sharing that knowledge with others. My Computer Science senior project in 2006 was on Ruby on Rails and it was finally what helped me to enjoy programming. I have been working professionally in Ruby ever since.
Secretary
Hello! I'm currently a Principal Software Engineer at Oracle, working on cloud stuff. Before that I was a team lead for a NoSQL startup, a .Net consultant, and other things. I graduated with a CSE degree from The Ohio State University back in the ancient times before iPhones and Twitter. I'm also a work-from-home rockstar, for more than half my career now.
Treasurer
I presently am an IT Recruiting Manager at Everest Technologies & CRB Board of Directors Treasurer. I lead and oversees a team of Recruiters who Source and Recruit top notch candidates; while ensuring a positive candidate experience. As the current Treasurer of the CRB Board, I also manage the finances of the organization, advised and administrates fiscal matters for the board. I also created and maintain the CRB LinkedIn Page.
I’ve developed on the web for 20 years and have consulted for the last ten years. I can take most any idea and make it functional. I can configure pools of servers, architect and develop the applications on those servers, and make it all look good (and run). Before launching Matched Pattern I was a Senior Developer at Rackspace and Professor at Franklin University. I hold a Master’s Degree in Computer Science and I’ve lead the 500+ members of the Columbus Ruby Brigade for years. I’ve launched projects for folks like Rackspace, AT&T, Sprint, Digitas, LivingSocial and SeoMoz to local engineering and consulting firms.
Jon Canady is a long-serving board member for CRB, and the current MC for the Monthly Meetup, with over a decade of experience in the Columbus Ruby community. He was a founding engineer at CoverMyMeds, and is currently consulting with Matched Pattern.
