Meet the Author


Cory Gackenheimer is a software engineer from Indianapolis, Indiana. He studied Physics at Purdue University where he worked with image analysis software for nanoscale environments. His software experience has led him to utilize many different technologies including C#, C++, Visual Basic, SQL Server, MongoDB, Cassandra and, of course, JavaScript. He has a driving passion to learn new things and find more efficient processes and procedures. When he first encountered Node.js he realized the potential that utilizing the ubiquitous language of the web on the server was both efficient and revolutionary. Since then he has spent a considerable amount of time learning and building things with Node.js. Aside from hacking on code, he enjoys spending time with his family, running, cycling, or playing the occasional soccer game.
