Meet the Author

Sean Lang is currently attending MSOE - majoring in Software Engineering. Even though he is a freshman there, he is by no means new to the field. He has been teaching himself software development for the last 4 years, and in this time, he has done extensive volunteer work for open-source software projects. These include roots (a toolkit for building web apps), the Jade template engine, nib (a set of utilities for advanced web-page styling), and a myriad of smaller projects. In addition, he has been doing freelance web design and consulting as a side-job - which is especially convenient because it gives him an opportunity to use the open source tools that he has been developing, in production. He started writing this book about Jade to supplement the existing documentation and help teach people the language. Also, he has never written a full book before, so he is really interested and excited about what being an author is like.

Some readers will be frustrated by the perhaps awkward syntax of HTML. But what can you do? Just put up with all those wretched tags? Well, Jade presents itself as a more compact alternative. It lets you write without the tags, in a style akin almost to free form poetry, as alluded to early in the text. This is input in Jade, which spits out correctly written HTML. You do not have to know the innards of Jade. The book talks briefly about how it works. You can probably skip that if you wish. And you have undoubtedly noticed the brevity of the narrative. A good sign that you can rapidly learn to use it. Less than a day to experienced coders. There is even provision for simple logic in Jade templates. Ok a programmer using to procedural languages like C or Fortran would laugh at the functionality here. But all this sits on top of HTML, which is a declarative language. So the amount of logic Java furnishes should not be deprecated.
