About the Author
Michael Erasmus has been developing software for over 10 years. He has been a C# programmer for quite a few of them, but has luckily been enlightened enough to become an open source zealot during the last few years. The most loved tools in his utility belt are Ruby and Rails, Linux, MongoDB, Vim, jQuery, and CoffeeScript. He's interested in all manner of science and technology, but tends to dwell on things such as elegant and eccentric programming languages, machine learning and statistics, web development, Internet startups, and civic hacking. He is currently working at 22seven.com, building a service that will help change people's behaviour and do more with the money they have. When he's not sitting in front of the computer, he likes pulling faces to amuse his baby son, apologizing to his wonderful wife for sitting in front of a computer all day, or arguing endlessly with friends, family, colleagues, and random strangers. He lives near the beach in Muizenberg, Cape Town and loves it.
