Senior iOS Developer at Apple+IBM partnership

For every 15 minutes
In 2010, after watching several colleagues tear their hair out manually analyzing and manipulating spreadsheet upon spreadsheet of data in Excel, I taught myself how to write VBA macros to help them out. I quickly realized two things: programming can quickly make people's lives much easier, and it's a lot of fun. I was hooked. A master's degree in Software Engineering, an internship with the Google Summer of Code program, a few startup ideas later, and I now code enterprise level iOS apps for the Apple + IBM partnership. I can still remember writing my first Java program; the excitement and frustration it brought. The instant gratification of writing a macro and watching it work its magic on an Excel spreadsheet was gone, replaced by null pointer exceptions and indecipherable compiler complaints. However, each issue I worked through made the excitement of watching my program run even greater. As a mentor I hope to help you reduce the frustration and maximize the excitement and reward of programming. Some other random facts about me: - I love cycletouring and I once rode my bike around Puerto Rico - I have an undergrad degree in International Studies and also spent a year in music school studying jazz guitar - I used to teach ESL, math, guitar and music - I was my University's co-ed intramural ping-pong singles champ (well, at least for one semester...) I'm looking forward to helping you along your journey in iOS development! Antonio

Antonio was great. Helped me with a problem I was having parsing json data. He helped me understand why I was having this problem by going through my code with me step by step. I will be going through Antonio from now on.

Antonio is super smart and was able to address all of the issues I brought up. I've signed him up as my long-term mentor and am looking forward to developing my skills under his tutelage.
