Bermon Painter Charlotte City Leader @bermonpainter 15 years of design and development experience in varying industries. I'm a designer/developer hybrid that can take or create an idea and see if through all the way to creation. I work best with cross-discipline groups and focus on taking a user centered, iterative approach to product development. I work primarily with Ruby based technologies such as Sinatra, Rails, Haml, Slim, Sass & Compass. I'm also heavily involved in the local Charlotte tech community and run the Charlotte User Experience, Charlotte Front-End Developers, and Charlotte Grok meetup groups. I have also organized various events in Charlotte including BarCamp Charlotte and Web Afternoon. I speak fluent English, Spanish and a bit of Italian.
