Josh Kemp Jump to Story

Do horses prefer Nike, Adidas, or Rebok? Josh Kemp can tell you. He can also whip up a few domain models and a little bit of CSS into a custom rails app.

For months, Josh has been learning to become a developer and blogging about his journey, down the material he's working on and the hours he's spent doing it. (He's also the guy that inspired us to talk about RTanque a few months back). A lot of people have taken his journey, but few have done it with such visibility and passion.

He launched his resume site last week and gained a little retweet love from the likes of Corey Haines and Uncle Bob Martin - go watch him pound out a horseshoe - dude has a freakin forge in the back of his car?!?!
