About Anette Bergo

Anette Bergo works for ThoughtWorks where she runs around and tries to fix things and occasionally gets to write some code. She has had a bizarre love for JavaScript since her first web site crashed the browser with an endless loop, and decided to start the Melbourne JavaScript group in 2010 to find people that felt the same.
