Schneems is an open-source junkie that loves community building. He created and maintains, a tool for helping people contribute to open-source. When he's not working on that you might find him building developer tooling at Heroku or working on his own OSS contributions. He is in the top 50 Rails contributors and is an accidental maintainer of Sprockets and Puma. Last time he checked, he had over a 1.2 billion library downloads on RubyGems.
