John Resig

John Resig ’05 is the creator of jQuery, a JavaScript library that helps programmers more quickly create dynamic websites that display on a range of browsers. Resig’s library of features fundamentally changed the way we work with the web, helping simplify scripting for browsers and offering companies like Google, Microsoft and Apple an important tool in managing their online presence. He has emerged as a leading figure in tech, publishing popular books like Secrets of a JavaScript Ninja, speaking at major tech conferences like South by Southwest, and serving as moderator for a number of Reddit ‘subreddits,’ including the RIT subreddit that he founded. If you’re reading this on the web you’re likely interacting with Resig’s work with out even knowing it. But that’s okay – you’re not supposed to notice a ninja.
