iOS Developer, technical consultant, lecturer, podcaster, web developer, writer, editor and artist.
I am pleased to have joined TD Bank as a Senior iOS Developer, working on their mobile banking platform. I got my first TD account in 1979 and I have been a TD Canada Trust client since the early 90’s. So it’s really cool to be working on the apps in at the TD Centre, which was created by one of my favorite architects, Mies Van Der Rohe.
I also host and produce the More Than Just Code podcast, which focuses on iOS development. It is a round table format including developers across North America. My co-hosts are Aaron Vegh, Jaime Lopez Jr, Mark Rubin and sometimes Greg Heo. I also guest host on the RoundaboutFM podcast.
I am still working on iOS apps. This involves updating apps that I have produced for 2 For Life Media, Son House Productions and my own company, iT Guy Technologies. These are some pretty diverse apps in life style, entertainment, productivity and of course games. Apps you can check out are 2life, 2life Baby, 2life Ultimate Wedding Planner, the Strombo Show, Device Tracker and Geese Squad to name a few.
Under the hood, for those who are interested, I work primarily in Xcode with Swift and Objective-C. I spend a lot of time with UIKit, CoreData, NSURLSession, AVToolKit as well as Sprite Kit and the requisite frameworks needed to manage content in apps. I can also be found wielding design tools to create artwork and wire frames. Soup to nuts I wrangle all parts to iOS and OS X app development. I also do a fair amount of web development, mostly custom WordPress and app APIs that support the mobile apps.
For the past eighteen months, I have been a member of the RayWenderlich.com tutorial team. I have written a couple of tutorials but lately I have been part of the Articles Team. I recently was involved as Developmental Editor on The Swift Apprentice book which was published in October 2015. I am working on another new project headed up my Ray Wenderlich himself. Stay tuned.
I continue to teach iOS development in a variety of settings, most often these days at Future Media Concepts. My latest course is Swift 101, for persons interested in learning Swift for iOS and OS X. Ongoing courses are on iOS development introduction and advanced. I have also trained users on Objective-C, WordPress, and various Adobe titles for print & web.
During the week of Dec 14, 2015, I taught “Advanced iOS Development” online. We covered some advanced topics on iOS development and Swift.
I continue to provide consulting services in iOS development & IT and I am available for contract work.
