About Mark Bates
Mark Bates is the founder and chief architect of the Boston, MA based consulting company, Meta42 Labs. Mark spends his days focusing on new application development and consulting for his clients. At night he writes books, raises kids, and occasionally he forms a band and "tries to make it".
Always wanting to share his wisdom, or more correctly just wanting to hear the sound of his own voice, Mark has spoken at several high profile conferences, include RubyConf and jQueryConf. Mark has also taught classes on Ruby and Ruby on Rails. In 2009 Mark's first (surprisingly not his last!) book, "Distributed Programming with Ruby", was published by Addison-Wesley. In 2012 Addison-Wesley published Mark's second book, "Programming in CoffeeScript".
