Cody Lindley is a front-end/JavaScript developer and recovering Flash developer. He has an extensive background working professionally (16+ years) with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and client-side performance techniques as it pertains to web development.

When not sitting in front of a computer, it's a sure bet he is hanging out with his wife & three boys in Meridian, Idaho. In his spare time Cody is working towards being a "One Dollar Apologist" and enjoys defending the evidence for a classical Christian world-view with reason and empathy. Currently he is working for Telerik as a Developer Advocate.
