Jesse Cooke

Jesse is a freelance developer in Portland, having moved there before it was cool. He’s a member of the Rubinius Core Team and was the technical co-founder of Watsi, Y Combinator’s first non-profit. When he’s not climbing or riding his bike, he’s enjoying a hike or reading up on new programming languages.
