About the Author
Scott Stark, Ph.D., was born in Washington State in 1964. He started out as a chemical engineer, graduated with a B.S. from the University of Washington, and later received a Ph.D. from the University of Delaware. While in Delaware it became apparent to him that computers and programming were to be his passion, and so he made the study of applying massively parallel computers to difficult chemical engineering problems the subject of his Ph.D. research. It has been all about distributed programming ever since. Scott currently serves as the Chief Technology Officer of the JBoss Group, LLC.
