This week we talked to Sebastian Gierlinger. He's a Ghost Foundation employee, and one of the two people who have merge rights to the Ghost repository. We talked about how he got to be a Ghost, his programming and startup career prior to that, taking on monster issues. Our #pro moment this week: Gabor's audio track got corrupted, and he had to re-record his replies, thus he might sound a bit out of place. Apologies for that. - G Show notes: devstrom (now acquired) Sebastian's Crunchbase profile Tomcat Weblogic JBoss Roadmap (revised) Sebastian on Github and Twitter sebastian at ghost dot org
