What platforms and languages do you use most often in your developer life?

I use a Mac. I develop for iOS and Android. The languages I use are C++, Objective-C, and Java.

Shout out to any of your apps available for download:

I was the tech lead on

Write (up to) 256 characters about one of the following: ARC, auto layout, toll-free bridging, or NSStream.

Reference counting keeps track of the uses of an object. ARC is "automatic reference counting", and frees the developer from having to explicitly retain and release objects. It is done at compile time through static analysis and programmer markup.


I did iOS development at Google and Facebook. In my past I worked on games (Capybara Games, SocialDeck), and now I'm BACK into making games!
