Gary Hockin has been creating code to power web applications for over 15 years, the last three of them at an extraordinary level. He is handsome, talented, funny and articulate, and also incredibly modest. Gary pretends to work, mainly as a developer for the BBC, and is a valued contributor to several open-source projects. He's married and has two beautiful children, and when he's not coding, writing about code, speaking about code or reading about code, he can usually be found in the pub playing pool. Gary recently found that conferences let speakers write their biography, and you can generally get away with writing anything you want.
