You heard it here second - I’ve officially joined the Unspace team.

About a year and ten weeks ago, I noticed an interesting topic on the Rails mailing list: a cool-looking templating language called Haml had just been released. Last spring, my Software Design and Development instructor had encouraged all the students to contribute to open-source software, so I decided to give it a go.

Haml seemed like a great place to start. It was small enough to have a very manageable codebase. It was young enough that there were major, interesting features left to implement.
