About the Author

In 1998, Jesse Feiler wrote Database-Driven Web Sites, one of the first books about the marriage of databases and the web. This relationship between databases and the web has grown and encompassed blogs and Content Management Systems (CMS), culminating in Drupal.

Jesse is the author of numerous books on Mac OS X, FileMaker, the web, and various other technologies, such as Bento, mashups, and Facebook. Jesse has worked as a developer and manager for companies such as the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (monetary policy and bank supervision), Prodigy (early web browser), Apple (information systems), New York State Department of Health (rabies and lead poisoning), The Johnson Company (office management), and Young & Rubicam (media planning and new product development). He also consults with small business and nonprofits in areas such as publishing, production, web technology, and contact management. Active in the community, Jesse has served on various nonprofit boards, including HB Studio and Mid-Hudson Library System, as well as zoning and planning boards. He has conducted trustee training sessions for Clinton-Essex-Franklin Library System and other groups. Feiler’s website is www.northcountryconsulting.com. It is, of course, powered by Drupal. Downloadable files, updates, and discussion forums for this book are located there.
