CHUCK:  Hey, everybody and welcome to Episode 49 of the JavaScript Jabber Show. This week on our panel, we have Joe Eames.

JOE:  Howdy.

CHUCK:  We have Merrick Christensen. 

MERRICK:  Hey, guys.

CHUCK:  Jamison Dance.

JAMISON:  Hello friends.

CHUCK:  And I'm Charles Max Wood from DevChat.tv. And I just want to remind you, if you're going to sign up for Rails Ramp Up, you have one week.

We also have two special guests and that is Valerio Proietti

VALERIO:  Hello.

CHUCK:  And Arian Stolwijk.

ARIAN:  Hello.

CHUCK:  And I think I got close on those names. Okay. So, why don't we have Arian go first? I'd like you just to introduce yourself really quickly for people who aren’t familiar with who you are?

ARIAN:  So, I’m Arian. I'm a MooTools developer mostly. Besides that, I work for a company called Symbaloo which is bookmark website page. Besides that, I'm actually still studying for my Master’s Degree in Embedded Systems. And that's about it.

CHUCK:  Cool. And Valerio, do you want to introduce yourself?

VALERIO:  Sure. Well, I created MooTools a few years ago and since then, a lot of cool people have joined the project like Arian who we have here today. I’m currently working in Sweden at Spotify.

CHUCK:  Oh, cool!

MERRICK:  Very cool!

CHUCK:  Yeah, we like Spotify.

MERRICK:  Is that the headquarters of Spotify is in Sweden?

VALERIO:  Yeah, this is the where the magic happens. They have other offices but they're not as important as the Swedish one.


VALERIO:  I'm kidding. Everybody’s important, not just the Swedish one.

CHUCK:  Very nice, very nice. Alright. So, do you guys want to just take a minute and explain what MooTools is? I think people have some idea, but just to get kind of a base line for the rest of the conversation.
