Isaac Strack

Isaac Strack is a speaker, author, inventor, technologist, and a strong advocate of STEM education. With over 15 years of experience in Management Information Systems (MIS) and web/mobile technologies, he enjoys discovering and applying new technologies to make our lives more enjoyable and productive.

An early adopter of Meteor, Isaac is the author of Getting Started With Meteor.js JavaScript Framework, Packt Publishing, and the recently released video series Learning Meteor Application Development, Packt Publishing.

He currently serves on the board of directors for the Wasatch Institute of Technology (, one of Utah's newest and most innovative high schools, employing a project-based, agile teaching methodology known as Next Generation Education.

When he isn't poking around new JavaScript frameworks, advocating more and better STEM education in the state of Utah, or playing a mean game of mediocre middle-aged soccer, Isaac is at home with his amazing wife, Kirsten, and his four daughters, one of whom will most certainly rule the world (our money is on the youngest).
