I started writing code at 15 and built small as well as mission-critical, internal and user-facing applications from scratch to finish: from requirements to design, development, delivery, and maintenance. I have good UX design sense and am detail-oriented and responsibility-driven.
I started with iOS at the end of 2011. I learned Objective C and Xcode, attended WWDC and Big Nerd Ranch’s Advanced iOS class on own dime, and worked with many core parts of iOS SDK: UIKit, CoreData, CoreImage, AVFoundation, networking, caching, animations, multi-threading, Instruments. I used CocoaPods, Travis, and open-source projects like Mantle and MagicalRecord.
Pre-iOS, I worked with C#, ASP.NET MVC, and the related Microsoft and open-source stacks.
