Brad Neuberg

Biography

Brad Neuberg is currently a Senior Software Engineer at Inkling, a San Francisco based startup backed by Sequoia Capital that is making the world a smarter place through rich, interactive learning experiences built for mobile devices and the web. He is the original architect for Inkling Habitat, a beautiful, shared, and open collaborative publishing environment designed for professionals. During his nearly three years at Inkling Brad has led the engineering team building Inkling Habitat; run engineering for special projects focused on drastically changing how eBooks are produced; and run the web team.

Previous to Inkling he was a Software Engineer at Google on the Google Docs and social teams as well as a Developer Advocate at Google for HTML5, the Open Web, and Google Gears. Brad is a JavaScript pioneer in pushing web browsers in new directions, and is the creator of a number of JavaScript libraries and frameworks for expanding the capabilities of web applications; he had the first libraries for Ajax History management, client-side storage, and offline web applications, for example, all of which fed into the creation of HTML5. Brad worked with Douglas Engelbart, the inventor of the computer mouse and hypertext, on the HyperScope project; explored deeply collaborative web browsers with Paper Airplane; worked on one of the first web-based RSS aggregators; and worked as a consultant on the first iteration of the Internet Archive's Open Library project.

Brad also created Coworking, an international grassroots movement to establish a new kind of workspace for the self-employed.
