Get the Obie Fernandez Wallpaper

In Miscellaneous

obiefernandez.png If you've a Rails developer, no doubt you've probably heard of Obie Fernandez, the founder of Hashrocket and instigator of the controversial Rails Maturity Model. Well, now you can celebrate your love for the chap with this professionally designed wallpaper by nGen Works.

On Obie, nGen say:

A serial entrepreneur, Obie started his first business at the age of 15 and he hasn’t slowed down since. When he’s not traveling around the world preaching the gospel of Rails he’s running one of the world’s most kick ass development shops ever – Hashrocket. Oh yeah, he’s also a great photographer, composer and wrote the best selling book The Rails Way. What an overachieving jerk.

What next? DHH, Giles Bowkett or Zed Shaw wallpaper? Submissions welcomed in the comments here. If you do something good I might use it while at RailsConf.

    My marketing department is working on branded laptop bags, MBP-sized stickers, iPhone cases, USB-powered condoms, glow-in-the-dark dental floss, and adult diapers.

    If it came in a variation of background colours, perhaps it'd be news. Or a t-shirt.
