David Padilla is CEO at Crowd Interactive, a leader Ruby on Rails consultancy based in Mexico.
He's usually trying out all the new technologies that come out everyday, and, sometimes, just knowing how to use them is not enough, so, he spends a lot of his free time reading other people's code.
Through his career, he has been devoted to promoting the Ruby on Rails community in Mexico through rails.mx and the organization of the only Ruby conference in the area: Magma Conf.
