About Rebecca Murphey

Rebecca Murphey is a JavaScript application developer and consultant, working to help clients write client-side applications that treat JavaScript as a rich and powerful language, not a toy. She's a co-host of the rollicking yayQuery podcast, the organizer of the unexpectedly epic TXJS, and a contributor to the jQuery Cookbook from O'Reilly. She's also active in trying to get more women to participate in the tech community, even if it means she has to get up on stage herself. She lives in Durham, North Carolina, with her partner, two dogs, and two terrible cats.
