iPhone & iPad (iOS) Developer
I quit my cushy well paying job with Merrill Lynch once I attended WWDC (Apple's annual developer event) at San Francisco in June 2009. I knew right away that developing for iPhones and eventually for iPad is what I want to do for living. I have not looked back since.
During my past 5 years developing for Apple's iOS platform, I have learnt a lot not only about the iOS platform itself but also about supporting technologies and how to work with other teams like Backend (php, .NET, Ruby on Rails), Design (UX, Color Theory, Graphics), Databases (SQL, File-based), Data Interchange Formats (XML, JSON), Front End Web Technologies (HTML, CSS, JS) and even a little bit of Android. I learnt that it takes a team effort to create a great user-experience from an app and every aspect is important.
Before Merrill Lynch, I worked with Convergys after getting a Masters in Computer Science from San Francisco State University. Overall having 10 years of software development experience with 5 years in iOS Development.
I am new to oDesk, however I have completed about 40 projects on other freelancing platforms with excellent ratings and reviews. Please check out my profile here for more insight - https://www.freelancer.in/u/MinimusSoftware.html
