I have worked in the software and I.T. services industry for more years than I care to remember. In that time I have used many languages on many platforms. Much has changed, a lot has stayed the same.

I have been writing here about my experiences learning and developing for iOS since 2010. I make no claim to be an expert in any of these things even when it might actually be the case.

I am happy to share what I do know and also what I don’t know in the hope of learning something myself in the process.
