Paul Jungwirth is a freelance developer specializing in Rails, Postgres, Javascript, and Chef, with some iOS thrown in too. In high school he helped build one of the first HTTP servers for the Macintosh, and despite efforts to escape to the humanities, he can't seem to quit his love for programming.
