The language I am currently most fluent in is Javascript for both client and server development, although I have done work with Java, C#, and Python, I am most passionate to work with node.js, or Elixir and Erlang to create native web apps and supporting APIs.

I am most comfortable with agile development processes and enjoy pair-programming and practicing TDD and BDD
