Aurelio De Rosa

I'm a (full-stack) web and app developer with more than 5 years' experience programming for the web using HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and PHP. I mainly use the LAMP stack and frameworks like jQuery, jQuery Mobile, and Cordova (PhoneGap). My interests also include web security, web accessibility, SEO and WordPress.

Currently I'm self-employed working with the cited technologies and a regular blogger for several networks (SitePoint, Tuts+ and FlippinAwesome) where I write articles about the topics I usually work with and more. I'm also the author of the books jQuery in Action, third edition and Instant jQuery Selectors.
