Today we’re welcoming Charlie Somerville to the family of mildly dysfunctional engineers known as GitHub’s Systems Team.

Charlie hails from Melbourne, in The Land Where Everything Wants to Kill You, and fortunately has survived being devoured by a wild animal for long enough to join us here at GitHub.


You may know Charlie as the author of some of the coolest shit that has ever been blogged about the Ruby VM, the man behind or the creator of the lovely better_errors middleware.

Since Charlie is not old enough to drink in the States, we expect him to take over the responsibilities of GitHub’s infrastructure while the rest of us are out partying.

Make sure to follow him on GitHub and Twitter so he feels better about this.
