Julian Shapiro

Julian Shapiro is a startup founder and a developer. His first startup, NameLayer, was acquired by Techstars. His current focus is advancing motion design on the web, and to that end he created the JavaScript library Velocity.js, which is rapidly becoming one of the most popular animation libraries on the web. It is one of the most starred projects on GitHub and is depended on by many top sites, including Tumblr and WhatsApp. He was also awarded Stripe's Open Source Grant for his development on Velocity.
