Oscar Finnsson is a software development consultant at Purepro AB, having previously worked in banking and with payment solutions. He has degrees in engineering physics as well as business administration and economics from Uppsala University.
He is the developer behind pager.js—the most popular Knockout.js plugin at GitHub, which is aimed at large single page web applications.
In all of these projects, he worked as a lead developer or architect. Thanks to his ability to think in terms of abstracts, his understanding of processes, and his analytical skills, he was able to achieve success in all of his projects.
He believes that when you master the software design patterns, the choice of programming language actually doesn't matter anymore, since you will be able to learn new programming languages very quickly.
Marco also has a personal weblog at http://marcofranssen.nl, where he shares his knowledge with the community.
He has also worked on the book jQuery Flot Visual Data Analysis.
