Meet the Author

Marius Danciu spent the past 6 years architecting, designing, and leading development of highly scalable server-side applications based on J(2)EE platforms. Most applications were based on the data synchronization techniques (which in turn were based on the SyncML OMA standard) and adjacent technologies. For more than a year, Marius has been a committer to the LiftWeb framework, contributing to the design and implementation of various features in the framework.

Tyler Weir is a committer on Lift and started his career working on compilers at IBM. He moved on to help start Varicent Software as a developer and a manager. He cofounded an independent development company, RoboBoogie Studios, which builds web and iPhone apps. He has been using Lift since version 0.3.

Derek Chen-Becker is committer on the Lift project. He is a senior network engineer for a large company. He's been doing software development for over 14 years, with 12 years of Java experience. He started working with Scala 2 years ago and has been working heavily with Lift since version 0.2 came out.
