I'm Ryan Lowe, a Software Engineering graduate living in Ottawa, Canada. I like agile software development and Ruby on Rails.
I write this blog in Canadian English and don't use a spell checker. Typos happen.

» Full-time with Rails since May 2005

» I also have a few Rails side-projects in development:
1. wheretogoinTO.com Toronto nightlife

3. Layered Genealogy family history research
4. foos for foosball scoring
5. fanconcert for music fans (on hold)
Hiring Rails developers? I can telecommute by the hour from Ottawa, Canada

What's Up, Doc?
The focus there was to allow a project manager to see the current status of the project easily without having to do a build himself. The Junit and jcoverage tools expose this quality information quite well. With the information the manager can make educated decisions and scheduling, resource allocation, etc.
AudioMan hasn't had a stable release in a while, and given that I've put a lot of new things in since 0.2.0 I decided to release 0.4.0 instead of another development release (0.3.2). It will be out this week, pending one last bug smash. Thanks James and Roy for testing.
After I release AudioMan I'm going to start programming in Smalltalk as a break from Java. I'm really curious what all the fuss is about and I want to get first hand experience. I think I'll try to make a Blackjack game, test-first naturally. I'll be documenting the process as I go along.
Update 11:13 AM: The latest integration build is going to be AudioMan 0.4.0 tomorrow if there are no problems with it. If you have some time, give it a test run. Thanks.Posted at June 02, 2004 at 07:48 AM EST
