Lance Nanek, Developer Evangelist at HTC
Lance Nanek is a veteran software engineer who has shipped on every major mobile platform and written server software for both in house servers and cloud. I graduated with honors in Chemical Biology and Computer Science from a top engineering school, Stevens Institute of Technology, and followed that up with a Masters in Software Engineering.
I recently received a commendable rating working with HTC for over a year getting the world's top companies running on mobile platforms with amazing user experiences. Before that I worked for several years at IBM doing web metrics, a couple years at State University of New York writing Java server code and web pages, and a couple years doing freelance mobile development.
A highlight of my career was implementing the CardioTrainer Pro app with several other engineers, which became the top revenue generating add-on for that company's million download free app. I've also put extensive time into writing solutions involving photo capture, upload, and storage; NFC; gaming, monetization, social, and powerful graphics languages like OpenGL ES.
