Hi, everyone. I'm sorry I haven't got round to introducing myself sooner...
I'm a developer at a London-based worker cooperative, Go Free Range (https://gofreerange.com/).
I'm the original author of Mocha (https://mocha.jamesmead.org/), a popular open-source mocking framework for Ruby.
Are there any other Ruby developers on here?
