Jonathan Palley
Co-Founder, COO/CTO, Idapted Ltd.


Jonathan Palley has developed education technology for over 10 years and is co-founder at Idapted. He’s spoken frequently about Rails, iterative development and education technology at such events as SD2C ‘08 and ’09 (China’s largest development conference), The British Council English Research Symposium, RailsConf (‘07), ClueCon, and GloCALL. He was the first person to start an in-house Rails development team in Beijing (where he lives) and has fond memories of trying to build his own Rails plugin system before one existed. He studied physics and theater at Stanford University and can be seen performing monthly improv-comedy shows in Beijing’s theater district.
