Hello! I'm Jeff, a software developer.

I write code. Mostly in Swift.

About Me

I have been fascinated by computers and programming ever since I sat down at my first computer when I was 12 years old. That means I've been writing code for 29 years (19 professionally). That's a pretty long time. The only way to continue doing anything that long is to truly enjoy it, which I do. There's always something new to learn and I'm always striving to refine my skills. From my humble beginnings hacking away on BASIC I moved on to explore more structured and powerful languages like Pascal and C. As the web came fully into focus in the 90s I jumped in with both feet and became proficient in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Perl, PHP, and Java along the way. I switched to a Mac in 1999 and have been enamoured with all things Apple ever since. When Steve Jobs stood up on stage and introduced the iPhone in 2007 I was completely blown away. I knew I had to have one. I also knew that I wanted to create software for it which meant getting comfortable in yet another language: Objective C. Fast forward to today…

My latest adventure in programming is Swift, which Apple unveiled at WWDC 2014. I have been working with it since day one and having a lot of fun with it! Swift is a truly beautiful programming language with a clean, expressive syntax. Now that Swift has gone open source the possibilities are endless and the community is exploding with exciting projects. It's a great time to be a Swift developer!
