I'm Matt. I'm an iOS Developer. I currently work on two apps that handle hundreds of thousands of users, one of which has been a Top-10 app in the iTunes store. I've also worked for world-class clients as a contractor, developing cutting-edge web experiences with JavaScript and CSS3 transitions/animations.
Ios expert help iOS - 5 years experience
I've been programming for iOS since 2011, and it has been my full-time job since 2012. I've contracted for a company that delivered a mobile point-of-sale iOS solution to its largest client; currently I'm the tech lead for an iOS team at a company in San Luis Obispo, CA. Recently, I have published two open-source iOS libraries to GitHub, visible here: www.github.com/matt-holden
Swift expert help Swift - 2 years experience
I've been hacking away at the Swift language since the day it came out!

I love JavaScript. I've worked on the back-end infrastructure for a large-scale, real-time, multiple-device content-sharing application built with node.js and socket.io. I've done extensive web-based JavaScript in my past two jobs, and I miss being involved on a constant basis. ** In short, I can proficiently explain this slide: http://ejohn.org/apps/learn/#2. **

I've trained my team with enough about intelligently branching, rebasing and crafting our process so that we could bring some sanity to our deployment strategy.

I did a lot of work with a large client to leverage CSS3 transitions and animations for Mobile Safari. It's been nearly a year, but I still feel very confident in those skills.

Really liked it.

Matt is great, he always takes the time (if i request it) to explain the details of what is happening in the code, specifically what's going on under the hood. It's very educational and I leave the sessions understanding more than I did before.
