The author of 20 Recipes for Programming MVC 3 from O'Reilly Media, Jamie Munro has been developing websites and web applications for over 15 years. For the past 6 years Jamie has been acting as a lead developer by mentoring younger developers to enhance their web development skills. Taking his love of mentoring people, Jamie began his writing career on his personal blog (http: //www.endyourif.com) back in 2009. As Jamie's blog grew in success, he turned his writing passion to books about web development. As well as writing books, Jamie is currently in the process of starting a new website (http: //www.webistrate.com) that is geared towards helping web developers further expand their experience with many online examples using MVC3, CakePHP, CodeIgniter, Jquery, Database Optimzation, and Search Engine Optimization.
