Kirupa Chinnathambi has spent most of his life trying to
teach others to love web development as much as he does. In 1999,
before blogging was even a word, he started posting tutorials on
kirupa.com. In the years since then, he has written hundreds of
articles, written a few books (none as good as this one, of
course!), and recorded a bunch of videos you can find on YouTube.
When he isn't writing or talking about web development, he spends
his waking hours helping make the Web more awesome as a Program
Manager in Microsoft. In his non-waking hours, he is probably
sleeping...or writing about himself in the third person.
