Peter Szinek, MSc
I am a Ruby/Rails developer and enthusiast, researcher, blogger and recent Mac convert. My primary focus is web scraping/mining – I am the author of several articles on web scraping (one of them cited in Learning Ruby from O’Reilly) as well as Ruby’s perhaps most popular web-scraping framework, scRUBYt! (around 11,000 downloads to date) – but in general I love to hack on anything Ruby/Rails related. When I am not coding away, I am probably chilling with my daughter, playing squash, taking photos or just enjoying life!
