About this Site

Hey there! Welcome to the story of my life. My name is Chris Salzberg, I'm a Canadian programmer based in Tokyo working mostly with Ruby and Ruby on Rails. I'm the author of Mobility, a translation framework for Ruby, and an enthusiastic Arch Linux user.

I'm known as shioyama on github, twitter, stackoverflow and everywhere else that matters. For more info see the links in the homepage of this site.

The name of this blog is a combination of “dejima” and “automata”. The cute little thing in the background is generated from the system described in this paper.
