About Peter Lubbers: Peter Lubbers is the Director of Documentation and Training at Kaazing. Peter is the co-author of the Apress book "Pro HTML5 Programming" and teaches HTML5 training courses. An HTML5 and WebSocket enthusiast, Peter frequently speaks at international events.
Prior to joining Kaazing, Peter worked as an information architect at Oracle, where he wrote many books, such as the award-winning Oracle Application Server Portal Configuration Guide and the Oracle Application Server Developer's Guide for Microsoft Office. Peter also develops documentation automation solutions and two of his inventions are patented.

A native of the Netherlands, Peter served as a Special Forces commando in the Royal Dutch Green Berets. In his spare time (ha!) Peter likes to run ultra-marathons. He is the 2007 and 2009 ultrarunner.net series champion and three-time winner of the Tahoe Super Triple marathon. Peter lives on the edge of the Tahoe National Forest and loves to run in the Sierra Nevada foothills and around Lake Tahoe (preferably in one go!). Don't worry though—he won't make you run laps around the building or do pushups during the meetup!
