"Jeremy Allison is a steelworker's son from Sheffield in South Yorkshire and a Samba developer who has lived in California for twenty years or more, but who has retained much of the accent, humour and politics of his youth.

"He was in the UK during the recent riots and "got to enjoy them first hand", but says he doesn't miss much about England other than the company of his family and friends and an occasional hankering for a jar of Branston Pickle or a tin of baked beans; the kind of things you don't imagine you'll miss until you are living somewhere else.

"In California the sun always shines and he is paid to work on the things he would be working on anyway: coding and debugging Samba."
