Why did you start coding? I started coding as a way to become more efficient at my job. I began writing macros using AutoLISP, VBA and .NET and as the company grew, I learned JavaScript, MySQL, and PHP. I really enjoyed the entire process of coming up with an idea, writing the code, and immediately seeing the benefits in our productivity.
What are you working on right now? I'm currently working at Raster Media where I get to work on a large variety of iOS apps. However, the one overall theme that ties all our apps together would be our focus on the user experience. This UX focus has us spending a lot of time adding subtle touches that really make apps more engaging.
Where do you see the industry going in the next 10 years? When the mobile software industry really started to take off, the emphasis was on games and social networks, but as smart phones and tablets continue to replace the need for PCs, it's likely we'll see a huge expansion in mobile wallet software. It's only a matter of time before it becomes as natural as using a credit card or paying with cash.
