Mathieu Martin

Hi, I'm Mathieu Martin. I'm CTO at SocialGrapes, where we develop web and mobile solutions for the wine industry.


10 My life as a programmer began with GWBasic.

After an unfortunate journey taking me through the restricted lands of Pacal, Delphi, VB, Java, C++, C#, I finally discovered Ruby and Ruby on Rails. Going from not knowing Ruby to knowing Ruby was for me a revelation of roughly the same order of magnitude as discovering programming. I discovered Git at about the same time I started working with Ruby professionally, and had the same kind of revelation about source control. Needless to say, both tools are now the underpinnings of most of the things I undertake programmatically.

I can be observed in the wild, sometimes going under the name of webmat. I ramble about software development (web and mobile), life as a developer and open source tools at programblings.com.

I am the author of git_remote_branch, a free and open source tool that helps mere mortals like me trivially manipulate git branches published in shared repositories.
