Nigel White has 20 years of experience in the IT industry. He has seen computer systems evolve from batch processing, back room behemoths which dictated user behavior into distributed, user-centered enablers of everyday tasks.
Nigel has been working with rich Internet applications, and dynamic browser updating techniques since before the term "Ajax" was coined.
Recently he collaborated with Jack Slocum in the germination of the ExtJS project, and has contributed code, documentation, and design input to the ExtJS development team.
Nigel works as a software architect at Forward Computers where he oversees development of both the Java server tier and the browser interface of the company's evolving web UI.
He also runs Animal Software, a one man consultancy specializing in ExtJS UI development, consulting, and training.
