What would you like to get out of this meetup group?

Meet a few interesting people, share some enthusiasms, maybe return to hardware hacking with all the neat tools we now have. Back in the day a friend and I used to build analog and early digital electronic audio projects, it’d be nice to make physical things to play with again.

What are your primary skills and/or areas to hack on? (e.g. front-end, back-end, UX, UI, hardware, graphics, etc.)

My coding experience has been primarily software, particularly UI/UX and graphics. The rise of iOS, though, as a mobile platform with a touch interface and significant resource constraints was what got me to turn pro — I like working out how to make the most of limited resources. I also enjoy culture hacking in many forms, including making electronic music and designing/co-editing an amateur magazine called Chunga.

What are your favorite tools? (e.g. languages, frameworks, devices, software, conceptual models, etc.)

Basically Xcode, C, Objective-C, Cocoa Touch, and math (I see programming as 50% applied math and 50% interface handling). In supporting roles, Pixelmator, Amadeus, Logic, Photoshop, Final Cut Pro. For devices, I like the iPod Touch but the iPad 1 was the first real example, however primitive, of a high-functioning tablet, and a unique presentation device.

What's something cool you've built recently? (it's okay if you haven't)

I’m currently finishing off a major revision of an App Store game for iPad. And I'm leaving in a few minutes to go to a release party for issue 21 of Chunga.

If you've been to hackathons in the past, what was the best you've ever been to?

I've not been to any hackathons.

Introduction

Pre-PC math hacker evolved into multimedia designer/programmer with a fondness for stochastic and generative processes. Came to Seattle to set type and joined the DTP revolution, with occasional coding jobs.
