Author Biography - Jeremy McAnally

Jeremy McAnally has been programming for about eight years and doing graphic design for four years. He is currently a freelance Ruby and Rails developer, consultant, and author. He has over three years' experience with Ruby and two years' with Rails; in that time he has developed a number of small, localized intranet systems and medium- to large-scale systems in Ruby. Assaf Arkin got bitten by the business software bug in '89, back when clientservers were the thing and C was a reasonable language for writing business logic. In '96 he switched to Java, and gave up client-servers for web apps. In '99 he discovered the beauty of XML and the appeal of open source, and was a founding member of XML Apache. In '05 he fell for Ruby's charms and has been using it since for development and for plugging holes that Java left behind. High-profile Rubyists David Black, Gregory Brown, Peter Cooper, Yehuda Katz, and Luke Melia round out the team.
