Jake Kronika is a web designer and developer

Jake Kronika is a web designer and developer with over fifteen years of experience, and brings to this book a strong background in front-end development with JavaScript and jQuery, as well as significant training in server-side languages and frameworks. Having earned a Bachelors of Science degree in Computer Science from Illinois Wesleyan University in 2005, with a minor in Business Administration, he went on to become Senior User Interface (UI) Specialist for Imaginary Landscape, LLC, a small web development firm in the Ravenswood neighborhood on the north side of Chicago. In this role, the foundations of his strengths in Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and JavaScript (JS) were honed and finely tuned. From there, Jake went on to work for the Sun-Times News Group, owner of the Chicago Sun-Times and numerous suburban newspapers in Chicagoland. It was in this role that he was initially exposed and rapidly gained expert skills with the jQuery framework for JS. Following intermediate positions as Technology Consultant with Objective Arts, Inc, and as UI Prototyper for JP Morgan Chase, Jake moved across the contiguous United States to Seattle, WA, where he assumed his current role of Senior UI Software Engineer with the Cobalt Group, a marketing division of ADP’s Dealer Services. Since 1999, he has also operated Gridline Design & Development (so named in 2009), a sole proprietorship for web design, development, and administration. Jake has also reviewed Django JavaScript Integration: AJAX and jQuery, a Packt Publishing text authored by Jonathan Howard and published in January of 2011.
