Ben Alman

My name (as you may already have guessed) is Ben
Alman, but most people call me by my nickname,
“Cowboy.” I’m a thirty-something web developer
living and working in the Boston area. I’m happily
married to a wonderful woman and we have two
very crazy, but very awesome ragdoll cats.

I currently work at Bocoup as Director of Training and
Pluginization, where I am responsible for the
development of beginner and advanced JavaScript,
jQuery and HTML5 training curricula. In addition to my
training and client work at Bocoup, I write articles and
give presentations advocating JavaScript and jQuery
code organization techniques and best practices.

I have created and maintain a number of very popular
open source JavaScript projects and jQuery plugins
and am a frequent contributor to the open source
jQuery, jQuery Mobile and Modernizr projects. As an
avid photographer and funk bass player, I love spending
time taking photos and jamming in the greater
Boston area.
